Health and Wellbeing checks
Participating GP surgeries are working in partnership with The Prevention Alliance (TPA) Stockport, to provide advice and support to older patients to improve their overall health and well-being.
This includes, for example, making sure they are receiving the benefits they are entitled to or providing help with shopping or jobs around the house etc. This is identified by way of a questionnaire, which is completed and returned by the patient to TPA.
The questionnaire covers all aspects of daily living, home requirements, social and personal circumstances and health and lifestyle. If a person identifies that they are having difficulty with any of these and require further information or support, then the person will be contacted within three working days by a TPA Keyworker
If your GP is not part of a participating surgery but you feel as though an appraisal of your current situation would be useful, please call 0161 474 1042 for further details.
