Third Sector & Self Help Services for patients

 Third Sector Services

Sometimes patients need social support rather than medical support but don't know where to go to get this help.  Due to the ongoing increase in demand to see a GP it is critical that we do everything we can to help our patients to be able to access services directly without having to wait to see a GP first.

Below are some helpful links that will take you directly to search engines that have been developed and maintained by the Welsh Government and Social Care Wales:

Community Wellness

They believe that every person regardless of their circumstances has the right to be well, not just physically, emotionally and psychologically but also socially, environmentally, intellectually, financially and occupationally.

They seek to empower people to become independent in their own community.

By providing the professional help that people need to deal with loneliness, isolation, mental illness and addictions, they enable the most marginalised and vulnerable members of our society to be seen, heard, and live more meaningful lives.  Click the link for more information

Veterans' NHS Wales

We offer psychological therapy to veterans, reservists and serving personnel awaiting discharge (with a set date of discharge) who have a mental health problem directly related to their military service. This may include trauma symptoms related to active service. We will see veterans with issues related to bullying or assault within the military. We may see veterans who have difficulties related to RTA’s or work place or training accidents related to their role within the military. We may also see veterans who were unwillingly discharged from the military and find civilian life deeply unsatisfying and have become depressed.

Since April 2017 we have designated Change Step peer mentors attached to the service. Their role is to engage the veteran, assist with any social needs and to support them in improving their level of coping and functioning.   For more information click the link Veterans Wales
