Behaviour Change Services

What we deliver

First Contact Clinical deliver high quality, person centred behaviour change services. We have transferred the knowledge and skills developed through working with people with addictions and used them in a wide range of settings and services. By making a difference where it is needed most we strive to improve health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities.

Our Work

First Contact Clinical is a provider for Ways to Wellness. This is an innovative social prescribing project for people with long term conditions (LTCs) in the West of Newcastle upon Tyne. It aims to minimise health inequalities in this community and reduce the use of mainstream health services.

Our team of Link Workers, based at GP surgeries, help patients get the right balance between professional care and that available from a range of services in their community. Patients are encouraged to set goals and develop action plans that could include:

  • Taking up and sustaining physical activity
  • Healthy eating / cooking
  • Social interaction
  • Accessing welfare rights advice
  • Supporting positive relationships

The link workers use our person centred approach to behaviour change that develops the self-confidence people need to be active partners in managing their long term health conditions.
