We are a ‘Year of Care’ – Care and Support planning lead practice
We have adopted the year of care care and support planning approach since September 2015.
As a result, we involve our patients more closely in their care by offering a 2 stage appointment process to help them manage their long term condition.
Appointment one is with the Healthcare assistant who will check your blood pressure, blood tests and a number of other measurements. One the results of this appointment come back to the surgery we will pass them on to you.
Appointment two is with a Nurse or GP who will focus on your current health and wellbeing goals to improve your health.
‘Live Well’ programme
Trinity Health has pioneered the use of clinical psychologists in the surgery. We have resident psychologists who help our patients with Long term conditions to manage their health.
It has been recognised that many patients suffering with long term conditions sometimes struggle to manage their condition because of underlying anxiety or low mood. Our psychologists are able to help patients with this and also refer patients on for advice about nutrition and diet and also exercise.
