Patient Champions

We are a voluntary group of patients at Grosvenor and St James Medical Practice.

Our ethos is that it takes more than medicine to affect positive change in people - whether through shared activities with the aim to promote good mental health and wellbeing; or through our extensive resource directory of local and national support groups.

Telephone support service

Our group of Patient Champions are currently developing an informal telephone befriending service for GSJ patients.  Our Champions will offer a friendly voice and listening ear on the end of the phone to those who are feeling isolated or vulnerable for a whole variety of reasons.  Patients will be referred into the service by a ‘Wellbeing prescription’ from the GP or Social Prescriber.  Our Champions have access to a wealth of information wellbeing  charities and support groups which may be helpful, but most of all they are happy just to chat!  More details coming soon…
