The Bedfordshire Wellbeing Service is constantly adapting and trialing new ways to continue to deliver an efficient and effective service to our patients.  We are open and accepting new referrals.  All therapy is being delivered via video link or telephone and this has been working really well.  If you have concerns about receiving your therapy in this way we can support you and ensure that you have the correct information you need to begin.  If you are feeling anxious, stressed or depressed please refer by to click on the “Get Started” tab above and “Click to begin“. Once you have completed and submitted the referral form a member of the Admin Team will contact you to complete the referral and book you into an assessment appointment with a therapist on a day and time that is convenient for you.  We are currently prioritising all NHS and Care Workers.

We are also running free Webinar sessions “Mental Wellbeing in Times of Uncertainty” and “Staying well whilst adjusting to COVID-19 lockdown”.   The Webinars can be viewed using a computer/laptop, tablet or mobile device. They will be a presentation with a selection of slides and attendees only need to watch and listen.

To register you simply need to email the service at elt-tr.bedfordiapt@nhs.net and a member of the team will contact you to book you in.
