Mental Health Practitioner

at

Saltash Health Centre

 

Who is the service for:

Any patient over the age of 18 registered with our GP practice who is presenting with a problem appropriate to be seen or reviewed by our Health and Welfare Practitioner.

 

 

Details:

Saltash Health Centre has looked at the provision of support for those with emotional or mental health problems – particularly anxiety and depression.   Often this is an area in which continuity of care is particularly prized and effective.

 

Outlook South West provide the primary care counselling and talking therapy service across Cornwall but alongside this patients require support from within the Practice, whether it be for sick-notes, prescription queries or worries or simply the ebb and flow of the condition.

 

Anita, a senior paramedic, has trained specifically in this area and our Health Practitioner will provide a point of contact for patients with mental health needs – both initially and for follow up. They will be available for face to face or telephone consultations.  They will work closely with the GPs and also OSW and the Community Mental Health Team.

 

 

 

 

Contact / Access:

Call the GP practice on 01752 842281. Our patient co-ordinator will ask if you are happy to give a brief description of your symptoms. If your problem is appropriate to be dealt with by the Health and Welfare Practitioner you will be offered an appointment, either face to face or via a telephone call.
