Patient Self Help


This web page offers you links to a number of websites. The principal aim of this part of the practice website is to help you find further information and guidance in managing your health. The web links are all NHS and therefore reilable and reguarly updated accordingly.

If you are a carer  you may feel alone and overwhelmed by the burden of the care you are providing. The NHS has many resources and can guide you by providing information about sources of support that you may find useful and helpful. See Carers help.


If you are a overweight or struggling with your weight and want further information, see weight help.

For exercise information see Up an Active. Some programmes are funded, if criteria is met.

We are also a Park run practice.  Patients can run, jog or walk or volunteer.  See Parkrun


If you are under 16 years of age or have children around this challenging age and need further information please see the teenagers help link. It is a list of references for many issues affecting young adolescents around 16 years old.
