• An increase in the range of services offered by the Practice, allowing a more holistic care package
• Interventions to increase social participation
• Patients feeling supported to increasingly self-manage their long term conditions
• Reduction in A&E attendances among patients referred to the Wellbeing service
• Improvement in the link between the Practice and the local voluntary sector.
