Making Every Contact Count (MECC) sessions happening across the borough Sept 2017 - January 2018

Help improve people's lives with a very brief health chat

Making Every Contact Count is about all of us doing a little to address people’s lifestyles in order to reduce the burden of preventable conditions like cardiovascular, respiratory and liver diseases, diabetes and cancers. The method is evidence-based and in line with NICE guidance on behaviour change.

This free 3 hour interactive course is for anyone who works face-to-face with Ealing residents, particularly if you are in the NHS, Council or Voluntary Sector. The training will give you the skills and confidence to...

1. ask people about:

  • Smoking
  • Alcohol
  • Physical Activity
  • Healthy Eating
  • Mental Wellbeing

2. give some simple 'nuggets' of advice

3. direct them to further information and support

...all in a way that helps them take control of their own lives and make positive lifestyle changes
