ESOL (English for speakers of other languages) for Health

Our ESOL for Health project aims to address health inequalities in West London CCG, through teacher-led courses in English. It is part of wider range of health information initiatives, which include health promotion events in partnership with NHS using library sites, and engagement with BME organisations.

The course aims to support patients in:

  • Understanding the various NHS services and how to access them
  • Improve English language skills
  • Using various digital health platforms
  • Signpost to voluntary sector organisations
  • Create a social network
  • Provide certificate and reference in order to support employment
