Practice Health Champions

Logo

You as a patient at the practice are invited to be trained as Volunteer Practice Health Champions.  Our champions will engage with other patients, try to understand their needs and organise activities.

Different groups are set up for patients, and a support network is being delivered within the practice.  

Our group look to support patients in a non-clinical way.  We have a very dedicated group of volunteers.  Each person has ideas about what could be done to support the Practice in improving the health and well-being of people in our community.  

If you would like to join our team please complete the application form below and drop it into the surgery.
