*Social Prescribing

Social prescribing allows GPs and nurses to refer patients with social, emotional or practical needs to a range of local services which are often provided by the voluntary and community sector.

Who is eligible to access the social prescribing programme?

Any person over 18 who has one or more long-term condition OR a carer of a patient who meets this criteria.

People must also identify with one or more of the following indicators:

 Socially isolated, meaning they have contact with friends, family or neighbours less than once a week

Frequent users of primary care services or accident and emergency  

Struggling to manage significant life change

Struggling to manage their health conditions

Eligible people who are referred by their GP or nurse will be assessed by a social prescribing coordinator, who will then refer the patient to voluntary organisations which have programmes that can help with their particular needs. 

*NHS Health Checks Age 40-74  

We are happy to offer a NHS Health Check for patients aged 40-74 without a pre-existing vascular condition (such as heart disease or history of stroke or circulation problems). This is aimed at identification and early intervention of factors that cause these medical conditions. If you are interested, please make an appointment with our Healthcare Assistant.

*Sexual Health Clinic

Both men and women need to look after their sexual health and take time to understand the issues that surround contraception and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
For instance there are some STIs, like chlamydia, that you could be carrying without having any symptoms. This infection can affect fertility, so it's important to make use of the sexual health services available for free on the NHS.

We are delighted to offer a  Free Sexual Health Clinic. Please call reception for further advice.
