The Health and Wellbeing Service aims to help patients in the Nottingham West Primary Care Network take more of an active role in their own health care through structured Health Coaching consultations. There is a focus on changing detrimental lifestyle behaviours with the intent of reducing health risks, improving self- management and symptoms of chronic conditions.
The Health and Well-being Coach can guide and support patients to set realistic and achievable health related goals to improve quality of life and overall health and wellbeing. The criteria for the service includes all patients living with Diabetes or pre-diabetes and all patients living with a respiratory condition. The Health Coach offers 1:1 support as well as group exercise sessions and support sessions. Sessions can be conducted virtually, face to face or over the phone according to the patients preference.

The Nottingham West Digital Inclusion Team are part of a new project aiming to help people in the local community to better manage their digital healthcare using the NHS app. The NHS app is a digital platform that enables you to find health advice, order prescriptions, manage appointments, access your COVID pass and much more. It allows you to take control of your healthcare, access services at a time that suits you, and reduces the need for unnecessary trips to the doctor's surgery (see below for more features & benefits).
The Digital Inclusion team, comprised of Damian, Paul, and Pauline, understands that navigating digital platforms can sometimes be daunting, and they are committed to providing 1-2-1 support to make things easier, and help you overcome some of technical barriers you may face. They can guide you through the process of downloading and setting up the NHS app on your device*, verifying your identity, and technical help with issues such as resetting your password. They will also provide you with general advice on how to use the key features of the NHS app in ways that best suit you!
Don't let technology hold you back from accessing the healthcare services you need. Get in touch with the Nottingham West Digital Inclusion Team today and take control of your health. Speak to your GP reception to find out more and for information about your nearest 1-2-1 drop-in session.
