The Royal Borough of Greenwich is a London borough in South East London, England. Taking its name from the historic town of Greenwich, the London Borough of Greenwich was formed in 1965 by the amalgamation of the former area of the Metropolitan Borough of Greenwich with part of the Metropolitan Borough of Woolwich to the east. The local council is Greenwich London Borough Council which meets in Woolwich Town Hall. The council's offices are also based in Woolwich, the main urban centre in the borough.

Greenwich has the Live Well coaches

Greenwich's Health and Wellbeing Board brings together key health and social care commissioners with local Healthwatch. Their efforts are documented in their 2015-2018 Health and Wellbeing Stategy

Live Well Greenwich (LWG) is more than social prescribing; it is about system-wide change to embed prevention at individual, community and population levels. The ambition for LWG is an integrated, borough-wide and scaled-up approach to prevention that unites the efforts of all. The service, delivered across primary care and community settings and aligned with a strategic focus on prevention at community and population level, is unique. Innovation is driven by its focus on frequent attenders in primary care, telephone triage and its whole systems approach At an individual level, LWG operates at three levels (underpinned by Make Every Opportunity Count (MEOC) training for frontline staff and volunteers):

  • universally available Greenwich Community Directory;
  • universally available Live Well Line (1:1 telephone support services); and
  • targeted 1:1 intensive Live Well Coach (LWC) intervention - up to six 45 minute sessions - based in primary care and in community hubs

Referrals are through the Live Well Line and through GPs.
