Keep Well consists of two projects offering free and confidential health checks for the targeted client group. Individuals who are identified as being at high risk or who wish to make lifestyle changes are offered follow up by health/lifestyle coaching with trained professionals. Living Life to the Full – Is a project which provides training and supervision to partner organisation to deliver a CBT style intervention to improve mental health and wellbeing.

The Keep Well vision is ´to increase the rate of health improvement in deprived communities by enhancing primary care services to deliver anticipatory care´.

This will be achieved by:
• identifying and targeting those at particular risk of preventable serious ill-health (including those with undetected chronic disease)
• offering appropriate interventions and services to them
• providing monitoring and follow-up.
Keep Well checks

In the Keep Well programme, individuals aged between 40 and 64 living in areas of high deprivation are invited to attend a health check. The checks include screening for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and its main risk factors, such as high blood pressure, cholesterol, smoking, diet as well as discussions around wider life circumstances such as employment and literacy.
