    plan and wellbeing goals.

    to help you achieve your goals and develop your confidence.
  • Provide signposting to other appropriate services and help you

Who will I be meeting?

Allow me to introduce you to the team…

Elaine Bartley
Senior Health & Wellbeing Support (Bootle locality)

Joanne Wren

Melissa Lewis

Gerry McConaghy

How do I access them?

The Health and Wellbeing Programme is linked directly to the Virtual Ward.   If you are a patient of the Virtual Ward you can access the Health and Wellbeing Programme via this route.

If you feel you would benefit from this service you should contact your GP or another health professional involved in your care and ask them to refer you to the South Sefton Virtual Ward.

What you will do for yourself?

 The Health and Wellbeing Trainers support people to do things for themselves.  People using the service are expected to set their own goals and work with us towards achieving them.  You are key to making those lifestyle changes and improving your wellbeing.

What happens next? 

A Health and Wellbeing Trainer will visit you to find out what support you would like, what your goals are and to talk you through the programme step by step.

Your Health and Wellbeing Trainer will then help you develop your own individualised action plan to help you achieve your goals, providing you with the necessary tools, techniques and contacts to help you along the way.

You will receive weekly contact from your Health and Wellbeing Trainer who will be able to address any concerns you have, and see if you are happy with the service you are receiving.

Please note, this service will not:

  • Support people who have not given consent to the referral.
  • Support people who are unwilling to help themselves.
  • Undertake/deliver any physical activities.
