The Well-being Advisor may refer residents to external primary care services such as a GP or Practice Nurse if they find any significant health issue.

The assessments that the Well-being Advisor carries out allow them to keep an up-to-date record of your overall health. However, it is also important that you assist the team by letting them know if you have had any significant changes to your health or a new diagnosis.
