Mental Health Support One of our specialist Nurses can provide you with an annual mental health review as well as a general health check.
Social Prescribing Strand Medical now works in cooperation with Going Local social prescribing services. Please ask our staff, nurses or doctors for more information.

  • Social Prescribing is an opportunity to talk through any worries that might be affecting your health and wellbeing in a safe environment. The service supports you to make positive changes in your life by linking you up with groups, activities, and public services that can help.
  • We meet for hour-long appointments (and up to 6 sessions) to help you to focus on what matters most through shared decision making and support planning. We offer the Going Local service flexibility and tailored to individual needs. We can meet at your GP surgery, at a community venue, by going for a walk together, and also at home if you have a health condition that means it’s not possible to get out.
  • The support we refer you to could include: finding volunteering opportunities; improving emotional wellbeing including befriending schemes, peer support, or arts and leisure activities; social aspects of healthy living, which includes non-medical support to manage a long term health condition; and practical support at home to keep safe.
  • Going Local can be accessed via a referral from a GP surgery and or by completing an accessible online referral form

What happens when you are referred by your GP to see a specialist?

Referral to hospitals and other health care services

When you need to be seen by a specialist, the Strand Medical is committed to ensuring that whenever possible you receive an outpatient appointment at a provider of your choice.

To help you to make the most appropriate choice, we are working with a team of Patient Choice Navigators.

After you have seen your GP, and together you have agreed that you need to be referred for specialist treatment, Strand Medical will forward your referral to the team of Patient Choice Navigators at NHS Coastal West Sussex Clinical Commissioning Group who, using the NHS e-Referral System (formally Choose and Book) will help you to make an informed choice. In accordance with the NHS Constitution, you have the right to choose when and where you wish to be treated and in a timely manner.

Your GP will provide you with a telephone number for you to contact the team. You are then asked to contact the Patient Choice Navigators five days after seeing your GP so they can work with you to book your appointment.

Following discussion with you, the Patient Choice Navigators will send your referral on to the hospital or community provider of your choice. They will then contact you to confirm your appointment. Please note, if you do not make contact with the PCN team within 10 days of your referral then an appointment will be booked for you on your behalf.

If you have any concerns or questions about your information being passed to the Patient Choice Navigators then please speak to a member of the practice team. Information will only be shared when you have agreed with your GP that a referral is the best course of action.
