Attached Staff

Ms Philippa Dove (f)

Philippa Dove is our wellbeing co-ordinator. Philippa is in our surgery on Thursdays and is available to see/telephone patients who have been referred to her. 

The Wellbeing service is designed to support patients with one or more long term condition/s to resolve their non-medical needs and improve their effectiveness to self-manage their conditions.

Philippa can offer advice, signposting and support, and where necessary, low level non-statutory advocacy support, to assist patients with a broader set of non-medical issues. Philippa can deliver self-care management courses and one to one peer support.

The key service outcomes Philippa strives to deliver are:

• Improvements in patients' mental health and wellbeing.

• An increase in the range of services offered by the Practice, allowing a more holistic care package

• Interventions to increase social participation

• Patients feeling supported to increasingly self-manage their long term conditions

• Reduction in A&E attendances among patients referred to the Wellbeing service

• Improvement in the link between the Practice and the local voluntary sector.
