Practice Health Champions

The Champions are a group of volunteers who are registered with the Practice and can offer support to patients who may be glad of some help in coping with a range of non-medical issues.

Currently there are:-

  • FREE coffee mornings ( 3rd Wednesday of every month from 10:00 – 12 noon at the Bearwood Community Centre)
  • Health walks – long or short to improve your health or just to “walk and talk”.
  • Carer support – do you need to get out for an hour (maybe a health walk?), some other support or someone to talk to and share experiences.
  • Cancer support– advice sheets to try and help you through the hospital systems and processes or someone to share experiences and concerns.
  • Want to develop new interests or pastimes but don’t know how or where – perhaps we can try and help you make a start.
  • Become a Champion – new volunteers always welcome.

HOW TO CONTACT A CHAMPION

  • Ask your Dr/Nurse for a surgery referral. They have the forms to complete and this can be done during the telephone consultation or at a surgery visit.
  • Fill in a self-referral form- they can be found on our notice board or at reception. Complete the form and hand it in to reception.
  • Come to a coffee morning.

A Champion will contact you to talk about how we can help.
