Implementing MECC at scale in Cheshire and Merseyside

15th January 2019

17 months ago, the North West Coast SCN and Cheshire and Merseyside Directors of Public Health agreed to jointly fund a part time post to ensure dedicated capacity to lead and implement MECC (Making Every Contact Count) at scale in Cheshire and Merseyside. Louise Vernon from the SCN was appointed to the role and seconded to the Champs Public Health Collaborative, where the post is hosted, in January 2018.

The MECC programme includes three priorities within the Cheshire & Merseyside Health Care Partnership:

  • Alcohol
  • Hypertension
  • Anti-microbial Resistance.

Louise has recently presented to the Directors of Public Health, providing a detailed progress update on the key workstreams and encouraging them to champion MECC in their localities and across the system. Watch this space for more information and, if you have any queries, please contact Louise Vernon at
