Abstract Introduction:Going Local is a two-year community-based, person-centred social prescribing pilot programme, providing holistic support to people with long-term conditions. It is co-commissioned by the county and district councils and local CCG as part of a systems-led drive to reduce failure demand in primary care by enhancing the use of third-sector organisations. The evaluation is mainly process-focussed, with carefully selected outcomes being measured throughout. Aims: To reduce the number of inappropriate GP visits.To enable people with complex and chaotic lives to stabilise their lives and improve their overall wellbeing.To evaluate the effectiveness of local community-led initiatives.To further understanding and provide evidence to support on-going decision-making, and demonstrate value at an early stage. Methods: An evaluation is on-going to understand the impact of Going Local on service-users, as well as the systems and professionals around them. Conducting a process- rather than an outcomes-driven evaluation allows for the emergence of longer-term outcomes and offers flexibility to the programme. Qualitative techniques are being employed to elicit, real-time feedback from GPs and the Going Local team. Service-user feedback will be derived using innovative evaluation tools. Following the example of Sheffield Hallam University, a “Five Ways to Wellbeing Star” is used to measure “distance travelled” in terms of wellbeing, at baseline, during and following intervention. Also, the NEF Wellbeing Evaluation Tool is used to provide a detailed overview of wellbeing. Patterns of referrals and programme delivery are monitored quantitatively.
