Wellbeing Advisor

Hello! My name is Georgie and I am the Wellbeing Advisor for Fort house Surgery.

My job is to listen to you and working together, we can decide if you have any non-medical needs that I can assist you with.

We all know that many things affect our health and wellbeing and that taking care of yourself involves more than just medicine.

Life’s challenges can all contribute to ill health, and you may find yourself needing some extra support to address these issues.

I can connect you with a range of support services such as:

  • hobby and activity based groups
  • befriending, counselling and emotional support groups
  • housing, benefits and financial support
  • employment, training and volunteering
  • healthy lifestyle advice and physical activity or sports groups

The service is available to anyone aged 18 or over, but is not a crisis service.

You will either be referred by your health professional here at Fort House or you can request a referral to me via the on line form.

Once the referral has been made, I will then contact you directly to talk about your situation and what you would like to achieve; allowing you to take greater control of your own health and wellbeing

In the future I will post events/activities taking place in Elmbridge on this website, so please do get in touch if either you are holding one or want more information.
