Service Provider Organisations

Ways to Wellness has two service provider organisations that deliver the core elements of the Ways to Wellness service. Each service provider organisation provides services to the patients referred from a portion (cluster) of the 25 participating General Practices in the east and west of Newcastle upon Tyne. The service providers employ a team of Link Workers and manage relationships with the staff in their cluster of GP practices. Service providers work closely with each other and link with other organisations whose services and activities they guide some patients to use.

Using a number of service providers allows us to observe the different approaches that services providers bring to the role and the different results that are achieved. It also provides the opportunity for the service providers to learn from each other, benefiting from their different areas of strength.
