Struggling with isolation, finances or employment issues within Torbay?
Or maybe you want to increase your physical activity, manage your health condition better or lose weight?
If so, the Torquay Wellbeing Team may be able to help you…
We cover 4 surgeries across your seaside town of Torquay: Brunel, Croft Hall, Cheston Hall and Southover. The team includes Social Prescribers, Health & Wellbeing Coaches and Occupational Therapist.
Improving your health and wellbeing doesn’t just have to be about medication, we are here to help you address any social/practical needs that might be impacting on you negatively, making it difficult for any improvement to happen. We pride ourselves on our local knowledge, which allows us to give a focused approach on what matters to you.
We will spend time with you exploring what’s important in your life, empowering you to take control of your own journey and encourage you to set some achievable goals to work towards.
We will also look at connecting you to any activities, groups or services in the local community based on your interests – sea swimming, gardening, volunteering – Torbay has it all!
So how do I access the service? It’s simple!
Talk to your doctor, nurse, health care professional or surgery staff and ask for a referral to the Wellbeing Team, after that we will do the rest! Not registered at a surgery? Not a problem, get in contact and request a registration form!
