How to get involved with Living Well

The service accepts self-referral as well as referrals from any healthcare professional.

Once someone is referred to the service an appointment is made to attend for an initial assessment with a nurse.

This appointment will enable St Michael’s to set up an individualised programme to help support and enable you to live well.

Attendance is then on a drop-in basis for as long or as short a time as you need.

A light lunch is served between 12 noon and 2pm Suggested minimum donation £2

Educational workshops include:

  • Stress management
  • Financial information
  • Planning ahead
  • Fatigue and breathlessness
  • Nutrition
  • Complementary therapy workshops
