About the Making Every Contact Count programme 

Aims and ambitions
Make Every Contact Count (MECC) enables the delivery of consistent and concise health and wellbeing information and encourages individuals to engage in conversations about their health at scale across organisations and populations.

The fundamental idea underpinning the MECC approach is simple. It recognises that staff across health and care, local authority and voluntary sectors have thousands of contacts every day with individuals and are ideally placed to support health and wellbeing.

MECC is intended for anyone who has contact with people to “Make Every Contact Count” and develop public health knowledge.

Online Learning
E-Learning for Healthcare and Health Education England provide an interactive learning resource for MECC. It supports the development of knowledge and understanding in asking people about their health and well-being.
