Summary

Primary care plus is a service for people experiencing mental health problems who might benefit from extra support over and above what is available from their GP (family doctor).

We are based at GP practices across the London Borough of Hounslow and work with GPs to provide for people’s mental and physical needs in one place.

The service helps to:

  • Support people who are being discharged from secondary care mental health services, such as a community mental health team.
  • Prevent the need for referral to secondary care.

Benefits:

  • Help that is close to home.
  • Recovery focused support.
  • Partnership with your GP, which improves overall physical and mental wellbeing.

We can help you identify your needs, manage your mental health and help you find practical solutions to life’s challenges. If appropriate, we may tell you about other services that you might find useful.

If you become unwell or need extra support we can arrange help from specialist mental health services.

Referral information

Speak to your GP if you think you would benefit from this service.
