Our Wellbeing Coordinator (WBC) Service is about supporting people aged 18 and over with long term health conditions to address social issues that are having a detrimental impact upon their lives.
The Wellbeing Coordinator Service is about helping people to build personal resilience in self-managing their own health and wellbeing, in to the future by putting in place social action support. This support is there to try and or remove the escalation of potentially unnecessary demand on GP/hospital services due to non-medical reasons.
Some of the ways in which the Wellbeing Coordinator may help, include:
- Working with people on a short term 1.2.1. basis to identify issues, developing person based action plans, offering support and signposting to other services
- Building confidence to manage health conditions
- Enabling people to move forward making informed decisions
- Supporting people to navigate systems and processes to reach required areas of support
- Finding out what groups and activities are available in your area
- Introducing opportunities for you to socialise and meet new people
- Providing contact information and encouragement to help you to take up physical activity
Please note the service currently only receives referrals to the Wellbeing Coordinator from the Centre for Healthy Ageing in Ellesmere Port Hospital, or from GP's and Integrated Health and Care teams within individual surgeries across Chester and Cheshire West. Please speak to the Centre for Healthy Ageing or to your local participating GP surgery about accessing this service.
