The HAPPEN Primary School Network, one of the National Centre for Population Health & Wellbeing Research’s research projects, is one of eight case studies that is showcased in a new report launched today at Health and Care Research Wales’ national conference (7 October).
The report showcases the health and care research being undertaken in Wales and how it impacts on improving health and social care services, making the lives of patients and communities better.
The HAPPEN Primary School Network, set up in 2015, now reaches over 13,000 children across Wales and provides schools with a better understanding of pupil’s physical, psychological, emotional and social health to enable everyone to work together to improve child wellbeing and academic achievement.
