TUC North West continues to work with the CCG (‘health authority’) and the PSS (voluntary organisation) across Liverpool to promote digital inclusion, and through training enabling people to take better care of their health and well-being.
Liverpool has higher than average levels of ill-health and the TUC are working with Trade Union reps and colleagues in the voluntary sector throughout Liverpool and Merseyside to try to improve this. Helping people to use IT to access reliable health information, and contact GPs etc via email, should help everyone to live a healthier lifestyle.
The free one-day training sessions on 22nd January and 26th February will enable Digital Champions, TU reps, staff or volunteers to help others live as healthily as possible and have improved access to health care by becoming “Health Activators”.
The training will look at digital resources that can be accessed by everyone on smart phones or PCs, and at preventing hypertension (high blood pressure), and resources for good diet, exercise, etc to help with these. There will also be a session on Diabetes Awareness included, an area not available via TUC training previously.
Continued support to all ‘Health Activators’ will be provided after the course and the training is funded so is free for hubs to access. It is designed as one day -9.30am – 3.30pm (with lunch provided) – though it can also be accessed as half-day for anyone who has already undertaken the Health Activator and / or Blood Pressure training elements but wishes to join for the Diabetes Awareness session.
