Practice Mental Health Nurse

We are fortunate to have a Mental Health Nurse, Keryn Johnston, working two days a week in our practice. Information about what Keryn can help with can be found here.

If you are experiencing low mood, anxiety or stress, you may be directed to an appointment with Keryn. These appointments are longer than our GP appointments, allowing Keryn to take time to offer brief intervention and support. She is also able to discuss medication or medication reviews, and any prescriptions required would be requested by her from your regular GP. Similarly, if a sick line is required, Keryn is also able to request this for you so that you do not need a separate GP appointment.

This service is for anyone over 18years old, but would not be suitable for patients who have a diagnosis of dementia.

More information, including support organizations can be found here.
