PHE - Menu of preventative interventions

Public Health England (PHE) has worked with partners to identify preventative actions that can improve people’s health, support quality improvement and potentially save the NHS and the wider system money. This menu details interventions that are estimated to give a return on investment (ROI) and can demonstrate cost-savings to the health and care system over a 5 year period.

Making Every Contact Count - e-learning

There are lots of MECC e-learning courses available, this one developed by HEE and PHE in Wessex, Thames Valley, Kent, Surrey and Sussex is one we can recommend. 

This resource, composed of four e-learning sessions, is intended for anyone who has contact with people to Make Every Contact Count and develop public health knowledge.

The package is part of a two-phase learning approach. The e-learning has been developed to ensure learners gain the underpinning knowledge and understanding of the importance of supporting people to improve their health and wellbeing and introduction to the practical skills to do so.
