  • Are you struggling financially and perhaps feel you could be entitled to additional benefits or need help with the paperwork
  • Support groups for long term conditions 
  • Support with housing or employment 
  • Mental health or courses to help with anxiety

You don’t need to see your GP to use this service, any of the staff (reception, admin, clinical) at the surgery can refer you into the service. So please don’t struggle, there is always help available and only a phone call or email away. Just call reception or send an email with a brief summary of what you are struggling with and we will make the referral.
