Help us meet our patients’ unmet needs

Date: 25 August 2022

There are times when our patients need additional support, whether it’s tackling loneliness, finding a support group, or requiring non-clinical care.

The great news is that thanks to funding from NHS Charities Together, we now have two colleagues dedicated to signposting our patients to those wider community support pathways.

But we need your help to tell us what services are available.

If you work for a local authority, in social care, or for a voluntary sector organisation then we’d love you to join us for a virtual event on Thursday 8th September and tell us how the services you offer could benefit our patients with unmet needs.

We will be holding two sessions on 8th September, the first 11.30am-12.30pm and the second 2.30-3.30pm. Both events will be held via Teams, and you can join using the following links:
