New Health and Wellbeing Portal Aims to Improve Information and Advice

From North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group:

There is a lot of information on the internet about health and care but knowing what to trust can be overwhelming.

This is why a new web portal has been developed in North East Lincolnshire with a whole range of resources to help local people plan ahead and tackle difficulties or concerns before they turn into a crisis.

The new website came about because local residents told us that health and social care is an area they find confusing and often only look for help when they are in a crisis.

The website offers up-to-date local resources and reliable national information and advice for people who want to take steps to improve their health and wellbeing or find support for health conditions and everyday living.

Livewell is a bright, accessible website that aims to make it easy for people to find the advice, information and support they need without going around the houses. There is also information on what to do if you are concerned about someone else’s wellbeing, interactive sections on living with dementia or a sensory impairment and a link into the new social prescribing portal for North East Lincolnshire which puts people in touch with practical support to help them overcome emotional or social difficulties that have come about as a result of health conditions.
