GP Support and Advice Project

  • GP Support and Advice Project

Our embedded GP support project supports the most vulnerable patients in northwest Glasgow by delivering advice that treats the root causes of NHS patients’ health and financial inequalities.

Our advisers provide crucial advice to a range of residents in the community who have been referred by their GP, or health professional, with issues such as; Debt, Money Worries, Employment, Benefits, Housing and Immigration. Clients referred can range from low income families, families with young or disabled children to mental health patients or clients with other health issues.

This project enables our trained Advisers to provide a free and confidential advice service to vulnerable people that may not highlight themselves as needing assistance.

The GP Support and Advice Project has greatly improved the mental health of patients by alleviating stress and underlying problems which cause long-standing depression and anxiety (please see SLAB report for more information).

This project is provided at 3 health centres in our surrounding area, including;

Maryhill Health Centre
Possilpark Health Centre
Woodside Health Centre
