TOOLBOX – An emotional wellbeing service for anyone over the age of 18 years who is feeling emotionally low.
Are you feeling worried? Isolated? Lonely? Or feel that problems are casting a dark shadow over you? We can help you find the right tools to help manage your emotional health. Toolbox involves a one off appointment with a Toolbox project work who can sit with you and help you understand the signs and symptoms of when you are in each stage of your emotional state and look at the support you could access and what you already have in place creating your very own support plan.
If you would like an appointment but are unable to attend any of the above dates please speak to Reception and complete a short referral form. One of the Toolbox Team will contact you for an alternative appointment.

New On-line Service - Medical Record Viewer available now!
Wetmore Road Surgery has introduced a On-line Service to patients. Patients must be registered with our On-line Services to gain access to the Medical Record Viewer. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact reception.
Text Messaging Service - Does the Surgery have your current mobile number?
The practice is delighted to announce a new text messaging service using a piece of software called MJOG. We need your consent to send text messaging for the purpose of health care and appointment reminders.
Text messages are generated using a secure facility, however I understand that they are transmitted over a public network onto a personal telephone and as such may not be secure, however the practice will not transmit any information which would enable an individual patient to be identified.
Are your contact details up-to-date?
It is therefore vital that you inform the surgery of your mobile phone number. If you do not wish to receive these text messages in the future, the service allows the simple opt out by texting 'STOP' to the surgery or alternatively just let us know at reception and we will do the rest.
