Our Wellbeing services are held at our Wellbeing Centres in Alnwick & Berwick and are open to anyone living in North Northumberland.
All our wellbeing services are drop-ins, so appointments are not necessary simply turn up. However, if you are feeling a little apprehensive about joining us for the first time, please don't hesitate to contact our nursing team directly for an informal chat on T. 01665 606515 or T. 01289 309997.
For patients, families and carers.
Many people think they need to feel well to come to the drop-in, but often people will feel better once they have been. This may be because spending time with others offers a distraction from thoughts and feelings. Our drop-ins are run mainly by volunteers, however, appointments can be made with one of our nursing team if someone needs one-to-one support. No appointment necessary, just drop-in!
