Practice Health Champions are people who voluntarily give their time to work alongside staff in their local GP Practice or surgery to find new ways to improve the services that the practice offers, and to help to meet the health needs of patients and the wider community.
The Health Champions are working with the Practice on a number of projects at the moment:
- Introducing the Appointments Guide (more information on the home page)
- Setting up some social groups
- Creating support groups for some key health issues such as diabetes and cancer (to start with)
- Supporting the community to access the health and social services that they need, when they need it.
