A continued thanks for signposting your patients to LiveWell. We’ve recently shared your quarterly report revealing the number of patients you’ve referred; how many have gone on to register, and how they’re getting on three months into their LiveWell journey. Please let me know if you would like to receive a report.
October saw nearly 700 adults in Dorset register to LiveWell; awareness of our support is growing. Joining national campaigns such as Stoptober and Every Mind Matters respectively increased the number of quit attempts and strengthened our offer of wellbeing support by partnering with local organisations.
Contact My Patient has been in operation for five months, signposting a total of 652 patients to register with LiveWell to date. In October, 40 per cent of patients GPs referred to LiveWell through this tool registered – it works! Your brief intervention is the lynchpin to start your patient’s journey. When you start the conversation, we’ll continue it in the long-term. Please do keep using this resource on our website and consider embedding it on your website or system.
Our Engagement team have been busy supporting flu clinics by delivering Health MOTs in surgeries such as Fordington Surgery and The Adams Practice.

Our RSPH accredited workshops are free of charge and ideal for your staff’s wellbeing and protected learning time.
