Posted by: eithneweddell - Posted on:

Tara Broadfoot will be joining our Practice in the role of Community Links Worker from We Are With You from this coming Thursday 25th March 2021.

She can offer you a safe space to talk about issues that may be stopping you living well and use it as a time to explore what changes and support you might need to improve your health and well-being – all at North Berwick surgery.

She can also accompany you to attend the places you want to be, helping you connect with community resources (eg Welfare Advice, Mental Health Resources), services (eg Benefit applications, housing problems, befriending, trauma) and groups (eg walking, Men’s Shed, art therapy) helping you resume a regular daily routine, make better life decisions and feel less isolated.

Tara will be working 10 hours per week every Thursday from 9.30am to 2.30pm and Friday 9am to 2pm. If you would like to be referred please ask your GP, Practice Nurse or Receptionist. She can see you at the Practice and when lockdown eases via a community venue if that is easier.
