What is LiveWell Dorset?

Visit the LiveWell Dorset website

Supporting people to make changes to their lifestyle, LiveWell Dorset is available to adults aged 18 and over living in Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole. It is staffed by specially trained wellness advisors and coaches, who provide information, guidance and support in helping your patients to stop smoking, lose weight, move more and drink less. LiveWell Dorset advisors and coaches work with your patients to understand what level of support they need by assessing their current behaviour and understanding what they might wish to change. They may deliver a brief intervention – providing your patient with information and simple advice, helping them to set some goals and supporting them to monitor and achieve these over the longer-term.
