Expert Patient Programme

As a practice we are going to accumulate a list of patients on our list who are prepared to help other patients on our list on a voluntary basis. In our practice area we are blessed with experts in many fields. This may include people who are involved with national chronic disease charities and could advise patients with that illness on aspects of their care. We have plenty of retired medical professionals who have knowledge to share with patients. It could include people prepared to help with social care, for instance providing company for some of our lonely elder patients.

We have links with the Royal Voluntary Service which we will use to vet our volunteers. Our patient liaison workers, Daisy and Lois, are based at the practice. They will be instrumental in signposting volunteers to patients and vice versa.

Thank you
