Health Communities Collaborative, South of Tyne and Wear
Maggie Woodward is from Gateshead PCT and works on the Gateshead Healthy Communities Collaborative (HCC), South of Tyne and Wear. The HCC consists of eight teams comprised of members from a variety of backgrounds including health, the local authority, voluntary sector and local residents. Maggie gave a brief history of how the project started, the collaborative methodology used, what was easy, the challenges and some examples of activities that are offered by the project. Community members, Maureen Middleton, Pat Nesbitt and Lesley Watts, who volunteer through the HCC, talked about the activities that they have been involved with in their local communities. These include the ‘Superman Play’, which was devised to raise awareness of a bowel cancer screening programme in a fun and entertaining way, and the distribution of beer mats to promote bowel cancer awareness.
