New Health & Social Care Facilities in Keith

GP Support Services

In addition to the clinics and services offered by the team at the health centre, there are several visiting professionals offering additional services to our patients.

Mental Health Link Worker

GP Link Workers are non medical staff based in GP surgeries across Moray.  A referral from your GP is needed to access this service.  Appointments aim to build up trust and connection between you and the Link Worker, and to help you identify areas of your life which you wish to work on and improve, with professional support.  The Link Worker will then connect you with the relevant services in the community, supporting you to take decisions and actions that improve your mental health.

Please speak to your GP if you feel that you need a referral to this service.  The Link Worker works at the practice on Thursdays and Fridays.

 

First Contact Physiotherapy (FCP)  

The First Contact Practitioner is a physiotherapist who works independently within our practice to assess, diagnose and plan the management of patients with new presentations of musculoskeletal conditions.  The FCP will support the GPs by offering a second opinion and advice where required.  The clinician will aim to manage your condition within the initial consultation.  If you require ongoing physiotherapy you will be offered onward referral to the core physiotherapy service.  Our FCP runs a clinic at Keith Health Centre every second Monday.

Alternatively, patients with muscle or joint problems can also self-refer for physiotherapy by telephoning  tel: 0800 917 9390.  This is a non emergency service for advice, information and assessment of muscle and joint problems.

Dementia Frailty Nurse Service

The dementia/frailty nurse works part-time at the health centre and assists the practice team in identifying patients who are perhaps struggling because of frailty or who are showing early signs of dementia.  This nurse can offer a holistic assessment and signpost the patient to the appropriate services to get any additional support and care that is required.

The frailty nurse may make contact by telephone, face to face appointment, or if required, via a home visit.

Please ask at reception for further details.
