Report shows success of NHS and third sector referral service

A report into a pioneering service, which sees NHS health staff working with Referral Coordinators to link patients into third sector support across North Cumbria, had been praised in a report.

Health and Society Knowledge Exchange (HASKE), at the University of Cumbria, was commissioned by Cumbria Council for Voluntary Services (Cumbria CVS) to evaluate their ICC Third Sector Referral Coordinator Team and its work, including a Health and Welfare Telephone Support Service.
