Elderly Care


Your doctors at Wide Way Medical Centre have been working with other NHS partners on a new project to help people keep fit and well, especially after lockdown.

We are developing a new website that to help you understand more about keeping fit and well and to take steps to ‘live longer better’. The website is called W:ISH – which stands for Wellness Interactive Support Hub.

If you would like to help your GP practice develop this new service, we would love you to take part in a project to try it out and give us your feedback and ideas.

To find out more information and to sign-up, please visit this website: www.nhswish.com and click on the link for Merton and Wandsworth.

There are videos to watch and information to read to give you some more details about the project.

If you would rather speak to someone over the phone, please call us on 01494 60 11 33.

For more information please view the W:ISH – A new digital service
to help you keep fit & well poster.
