LISTENING SERVICE

We are delighted to inform you of a new service we are now able to offer our patients.

The Listening Service provides a confidential and non-judgemental support service for people who need it. What ever you are going through, whether it’s big or small, don’t bottle it up!

Maybe you feel anxious, stressed out or depressed. Perhaps you are a Carer needing time for yourself. Maybe you’ve suffered bereavement or have been struggling with your relationships.

This service will provide a Listening Ear!

If you are worried about something, feel upset or confused, or just want to talk, ask your GP about the Listening Service.

Sessions available on Wednesday afternoons; by appointment only.
