This piece covers the PREP-WELL project which is a community based prehabilitation program in South Tees, in the North of England:
“We established the following guiding principles; we wanted to provide patient centered care under one roof with facilitated self management; we wanted to work as a cross sector collaborative, by that I mean primary care, secondary care and public health; all working together to try and improve on the fragmented service provision and sign work that we often see in our health care services; we wanted to provide a community based facility for patients; and I’ll come to the reasons for this”.
