The Well-being Star has been designed for people living with a long term health condition, to support and measure their progress in living as well as they can.

It can work as a stand-alone tool, or as part of Personal Health Plan materials.

The Well-being Star is designed to either be self-completed by a patient, or ideally completed by a patient and health professional together.

The Well-being Star was developed by Triangle in collaboration with North East Essex PCT and with funding from the Department of Health.

The Well-Being Star supports and measures progress in eight outcome areas that together enable people to live as well as they can with a long term health condition. These are:

  1. Lifestyle
  2. Looking after yourself
  3. Managing symptoms
  4. Work, volunteering and other activities
  5. Money
  6. Where you live
  7. Family and friends
  8. Feeling positive



The Wellbeing star data can be used as a successful measure of the level of patient engagement in their healthcare as well as their confidence, knowledge and skill at managing it independently.



Using reference to the ‘Journey of change’ it is possible to plot on the wellbeing star where along the 5 points of the journey the patient is across 8 elements of their health and wellbeing.

Data can then be compared internally and externally across a number of client groups or organisations to determine our patient activation rates.
