Across our pratices in Stockton-on-Tees we offer appointments with an adult Mental Health Practitioner. Our mental health nurses are on hand to provide emotional and practical support whilst improving access to relevant mental health services, allowing for longer appointments than traditional GP appointments and allowing some patients to be seen sooner than they otherwise might be.

Our mental health work practitioners work alongside our GPs, nurses, and other clinical services to provide a first point of contact service for patients to book in with to give advice, guidance, and treatment for patients with mental health symptoms.
