At the surgery we are constantly looking at ways to improve our service for all our patients but we are particularly aware of the need to support those with mental health conditions, an area which hasn’t necessarily been well supported in recent years. As a practice we are always assessing individual needs and building resources to enable us to refer you to the appropriate service.

We have a number of leaflets to give you which will help direct you to find the right support. We can offer exercise on prescription and books on prescription. 

Also, please click here for a list of useful contact numbers.

Computer cognitive behavioural therapy is also available, currently through MIND in Trowbridge.
