Taking care of our physical and mental health and wellbeing is essential at every point in our lives. Our team of Community Health Workers (CHWs) have been recruited to listen to and assist residents in managing their health in a way that works for them.
About the programme
Westminster City Council, Pimlico Health at The Marven and Imperial College London have launched a pilot scheme of trained CHWs in Churchill Gardens to run from May 2021 to May 2022. The CHWs work with a set list of residents registered at Pimlico Health at The Marven GP practice and offer their services directly through phone calls, calling cards, messages and door knocking.
A CHW is available to talk to you about your health, offer support where appropriate and let you know about services and schemes available to you to help with health and wellbeing, whether you have existing health issues or not. They are available to meet you for one hour each month, and will often be contactable via email, phone, text or WhatsApp during their working hours.
Your assigned Community Health Worker
If you are a resident with an assigned CHW you will have received communication both from Pimlico Health at The Marven and your CHW. If you have any questions, you can either use the contact information already provided to you by the CHW, or contact Pimlico Health at The Marven.
During the pilot stage, CHWs can only see residents on their set list. If the programme expands and more CHWs are assigned to more residents, Pimlico Health at The Marven and your CHW will contact you directly.
