Link Workers

GP Link workers work in the surgery and can provide extra help to patients.

  • Are you recently bereaved?
  • Have you experienced a breakup or change in your family?
  • Have you lost your job or retired?
  • Are you a carer?
  • Do you experience mental ill health or stress?
  • Do you feel isolated or alone?

The GP Link workers can:

  • identify existing support, such as local groups and services
  • agree practical goals and the support you need to achieve these goals
  • accompany you to these support services initially if required

Doctors, Nurses and Reception staff can refer you to the Link worker.

Jane or Tess will talk with you, listen to your problems, and discuss what you want to change in your life.
