MENTAL HEALTH PRACTITIONERS

OUR LEAFLET

General practices support people with a wide range of diagnoses and complexities, including people with anxiety, depression, psychosis, bipolar disorder, personality disorders and other needs.

 

Patients are now able to make an appointment directly with our Mental Health Practitioners, rather than waiting for an appointment with a GP or being referred to another service, helping them to manage their conditions more effectively.
