We Are currently running a food and wellbeing hub at Fearon Hall every Thursday morning.

This is currently run by a charity that we are partnered with at Bridge Street Medical Practice, we are very lucky to have this service, and hope our patients utilise this as we understand the current strain of the cost of living crisis, some members of our team have also booked in and had amazing results.

This clinic is designed to help those who are currently effected by the cost of living crisis, struggling with health complications,  in general need of  additional food or advice to help our community.

3/5 sessions are provided which include,

  • Ice breaker. Introduction to the clinic and information about what you can achieve.
  • Health check. This is done by a doctor. Dr Durant.
  • Benefit overview. This is done by our social prescribing team.
  • Cost of  living advice and guidance. This is also done by our social prescribing team along with onward referrals into other services we are linked with.
  • Plus food parcel given in every session. With directions and recipes for healthier living. We cater for all patients and remain inclusive to all needs.

Occasionally we run Menopause clinics, Energy Saving clinics and Art sessions for those who have artistic flare and wish to engage.

We are happy to take on feedback of other sessions you may wish us to include within our Hub.

Please speak to a member of our team to book you a place in our hub.

We have introduced a DIGITAL HUB running within Bridge Street Surgery, these sessions are designed to help all those who struggle with technology and want to learn how to utilise online services more productively, including setting you up to use our practice online services and the NHS app.

We currently have 2 days a week with sessions available, these run with a dedicated member of our Administration team, teaching our patients how to use online services plus download and navigate the NHS App.

Please contact reception on 01509 261843 if you would like to take part in our digital hub service. There is currently a waiting list, but we aim to get through this by adding more clinics as soon as we have the capacity to do so.
