At Crystal Peaks Medical Centre, we pride ourselves on providing high quality proactive care to our older patients.
A community specialist diabetes nurse holds a monthly clinic, which is well utilised by our older patients reducing the need to travel to hospital. Where appropriate, the Practice Nurse or GP will refer you, but if there are any matters you feel require specialist input, please alert reception who will pass on your concern to the team.
Community Support Worker
Referrals to the community support worker are targeted at patients who need some extra support to help remain independent, who do not yet meet the threshold for a social care package. Examples of support include taking patient’s shopping, finding and attending social groups with the patient to help prevent social isolation. If you feel yourself or a family member or friend would benefit from a referral to our community support worker, please contact reception who will arrange the appropriate steps.
Patients can also call the community support worker themselves on: 0114 2057120 from 8.45am to 5.15pm Monday to Friday.
