Local NHS and social care services and information
The Wellbeing services do not provide healthcare or social care support or advice. For these services the following places can help.
Prevention Assessment Teams
Prevention Assessment Teams are made up of health advisers (nurses), social care staff and people from the voluntary sector. They aim to help people living locally to stay healthy and remain independent. Normally, they work with people who do not receive services from specialist health care teams or social care services.
They can work with you or your carer and undertake an holistic assessment of your household. This will help identify what support might be required to keep you or your carer independent and prevent or delay the need for more intensive services. They will help you get to the right services for you.
Contact your local Prevention Assessment Team if you think they may be able to help.
The NHS Choices website has lots of information about specific health conditions and services. You can also search for health services near you, such as GPs (family doctors), dentists, pharmacies and NHS walk-in centres. Visit NHS Choices.
