How our Physical Health Liaison Workers May Help
If you’re having difficulties accessing your annual health checks, we may be able to help you overcome the barriers to enable you to attend!
We have a team of Physical Health Liaisons Workers working alongside GP practices in Surrey. The GP surgeries we work with* identify patients having a severe mental illness who are not currently attending their annual check ups. Our team then follows up with those individuals to support them to attend their health checks.
Our Physical Health Liaison can help with:
- Arranging your appointment
- Supporting you to travel to your appointment on public transport (we are not insured to drive you)
- Attending your appointment with you if you wish
- Prompting you to attend your appointment
*Please note that we do not work with every practice within the areas where we operate (Banstead, Elmbridge, Epsom & Ewell and Mole Valley). The GP Federation tells our team where they are needed and they will move GP practices over time, so we cannot guarantee that our Physical Health Liaison Workers will be there to support you at your local GP surgery.
