The Familiar Faces is a new and unique service in North Cumbria. We work alongside your GP to better understand and manage the health needs of local people. We work with people who have physical, emotional and social difficulties, where those difficulties have brought them frequently to the GP and other health service.
We may send you a letter or contact you by phone to invite you to meet with us. We offer extended appointments (50 minutes) so that we had time to discuss your needs in detail.
What does our service offer?
- Time to talk - We offer longer appointments which gives us time to better understand your circumstances.
- Links with community resources - Supporting you to access local organisations and services.
- Choice of appointment location and time - Working across various practices to try to meet you at a time and place that suits you best.
