Mental Health and Wellbeing page 

We know that it is difficult for you to come and see us so we are trying to improve the services provided.

Our GP Practice is there to help you with your mental health as well as your physical health.  The two are often closely connected – if you’re physically unwell it can affect your mental health and vice versa.

In fact, research shows that 40% of GP appointments involve mental health.

You might want to speak to your GP or Practice Nurse if you’re

 1. Worrying more than usual

 2. Finding it hard to enjoy life,

 3. Not sleeping or find that your mental state is affecting your physical health in       any way

 4. Having thoughts and feelings that are difficult to cope with, and that are             having an impact on your day-to-day life.

It is not easy having a conversation about your deepest feelings – but it is always okay to ask for help.

Explain how you have been feeling and don’t worry that your problems are too small or unimportant. Everyone deserves help and our GP or Practice Nurses are there to support you.

As GP appointments are often very short, think about what you want to say – or write it down to remind you, alternatively use the DocReady App or take a friend or family member with you if you feel you need support.
