Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board are proud to announce the opening of the brand-new Wellness Improvement Service (WISE).
Available as part of the NHS Wales Planned Care Programme for Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board, this new service provides non-medical intervention to improve patient health and wellbeing for those on waitlists for specific clinics.
This is an ongoing educational programme, a new service that will help patients understand the root cause of certain medical conditions. The scheme will also improve wellbeing and quality of life through proven methods to advance long term health and reduce symptoms. These methods include making lifestyle and thought pattern changes which help patients learn to live comfortably with long term conditions.
The WISE Team will initially be able to support patients with the following conditions:
This service will be delivered through highly trained wellness coaches, who will lead patients through a structured programme in the form of group sessions. Patients will focus on areas including proper nutrition, physical movement, and sleep improvement, as well as how to reduce stress and manage the symptoms affecting their quality of life.
There are digital health tools on hand to assist with the journey in the form of a new self-management website with resources on holistic medicine and wellness. The website also provides links to other websites which offer downloadable health resources, digital libraries, and relevant blog articles.
Patients can be referred by their consultant, GP practice, health professionals, self-referral, or social connector. If you are interested in this programme, you can get started by registering here: https://ctmuhb.nhs.wales/wise-ctm/wise-registration-form/
