Project Description

Making Every Contact Count (MECC) encourages health and social care staff to use the opportunities arising during their routine interactions with patients to have brief conversations on how they might make positive improvements to their health or wellbeing.

Health Education England’s Making Every Contact Count website provides all those with an interest or role in population health and prevention with a library of national and local resources that can be used to support the development, implementation and evaluation of MECC programmes across local communities.

The resources available include sample frameworks, case studies, signposting to useful e-learning materials and healthy lifestyle resources, amongst others. These resources have been gathered by Health Education England with the support of the National MECC Advisory Group and Public Health England. We encourage all those who engage with the public to access and use these resources, to help further spread the MECC approach across the country.
