BMJ Awards 2013

Littlewick are proud to annouce that we have been awarded Primary Care Team of the Year at this years BMJ awards, for our work with the LOVE project. The aims of the LOVE project were to improve the health and social care needs of the vulnerable elderly. 46 patients underwent a health and social assessment and were given a free ‘winter survival pack’ as well as thermometers with alarm function provided by local councils. Within phase 1 the project has been able to help 19 patients access advice and support with fuel deprivation, nutrition and falls prevention. The success of phase 1 means that the borough council received a small amount of money by National Energy Advice to support phase 2.
