Ways to Wellbeing

Connecting people to local community support to make them feel better

Nationally, 20-25% of patients consult their GPs for social problems, e.g. loneliness. We reduce use of GP appointments for social issues, helping people stay safe and well at home for longer.

How it works:

  • We meet at the persons local GP surgery
  • Have a brew
  • Find out what life is like – what is important to them
  • Come up with an idea together as to what might help
  • Work with others in the Voluntary and Community Sector to make it real
  • Review it

We know it works:

75% of people using Ways to Wellbeing feel more confident and 80% have improved their wellbeing.
