We are lucky to have a dedicated group of patients who have formed the 'Practice Health Champions '. With the support of the practice, they are giving up their time to volunteer and help other patients with initiatives such as waiting room support, and self help groups.
Bereavement Support Group
The Leylands Practice Health Champions have set up a Bereavement Support Group, meeting every two weeks on Friday afternoon at Leylands surgery. The aim is to provide support to patients who have been experiencing difficulties following a bereavement. For more information click HERE
Living with Stroke Support Group
Leylands Medical Centre, in partnership with the Practice Health Champions are pleased to announce the launch of a peer support group for stroke survivors.
Carers of those stroke survivors are also welcome to attend.
The sessions are being facilitated by Michael Speed, a stroke survivor himself, practice health champion and volunteer with the stroke association. Mick also helps run a local stroke survivor group in Bradford.
The group will discuss life after stroke, the difficulties, swap tips on coping and overcoming difficulties. Other relevant agencies who may be of help will be discussed.
The sessions will be held on Tuesdays at Leylands Medical Centre from 1000 – 1130, every two weeks starting from 24th July 2018
