SPOTLIGHT ON RURAL HEALTH
LIVEWELL DORSET SERVICE
The LiveWell Dorset Service provides information, support and onward referrals for weight management, smoking cessation, physical activity and alcohol. The service is open to anyone living in Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset over the age of 18. A team of specially trained wellness advisors will assess each person over the phone and provide brief interventions designed to support healthy behaviour choices. Where required, a programme of support will be offered to help people make and sustain changes to their lifestyle and signpost them to other services. How to signpost people to LiveWell Dorset Give the patient (over 18 years old) an information card with details of LiveWell Dorset or simply tell them about the service Verbally advise that they call using the customer number: 0800 8401628 (Freephone) or local number 01305 233105, to find out more. Request a call back from LiveWell Dorset to someone that you are working with (with their consent), to access this support - call the dedicated provider phone line: 01305 233106 – and provide the name, contact details and reason for referral. If you would like some information cards to provide people with an ‘informal referral’ call on 01305 233106 or email Paula Bennetts at; paula.bennetts@dorsetcommunityaction.org.uk Further information will be available in the coming months via @LWDorset and LiveWell Dorset on Facebook and www.livewelldorset.co.uk. This will include more details about the services offered, training and the different ways you can engage with the service. LiveWell Dorset hope to signpost groups like yourselves, from the community and voluntary sector to people who are referred into the LiveWell service. Therefore if you would like to have your information on our database so we can share your service / club / organisation with our customers then please let Paula Bennetts at Dorset Community Action know. Further information about LiveWell Dorset will be given at up-coming Community Lunches in your area.
