The Bassetlaw Place Based Partnerships, which will come into being as part of the new Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Integrated Care System later in 2022, is designed to work across sectors. This is because we all recognise the wider determinants of health that we can tackle better when we work together. The NHS has worked with housing providers such as SYHA for a number of years.
Dean was referred to Good Work by Bassetlaw Local Mental Health Team. His diagnosis is Bipolar Affective Disorder and, although he loved his previous job roles, they had taken a severe toll on his mental health. Dean worked with Diane, his employment specialist, on building confidence, developing his CV and was supported to access debt and benefit support. Diane also provided digital support and helped Dean to use video conferencing for his interview. Dean secured the job of Peer Support Worker at a mental health charity and has settled in well.

Working with GPs created great outcomes: the Working Win initiative
Working Win supports people who have a health condition to find and stay in employment. Clients receive one-to-one support from a dedicated employment specialist and can also get support from a qualified team of Health & Wellbeing Coaches.
Wendy Stammers, GP Partner at Woodseats Medical Practice said: ”Working Win is something we can offer our patients at those times when we feel helpless, and we just give them a sick note. Actually, this is something really positive and brings about really great results.”
