Sources of Support Service
Sources of Support is a 'Social Prescribing' service who work with people who are impacted by social and economic issues. Link Workers are attached to GP practices to help patients with non-medical issues which are causing concern.
Patients can now self refer to this service by completing the self referral form below.
If you have muscle, back or joint problems the practice can now give you an appointment to see a Physiotherapist first instead of your GP. The Physiotherapist will assess your problem, give advice and refer on for further treatment if required.
Community Care and Treatment Centres
Your GP may ask you to attend one of the Community Care and Treatment Centres to have certain procedures carried out, such as having blood taken, ear care or wound care. There are several centres set up throughout Dundee and patients can attend any of the treatment centres. If you are asked to attend one of the centres for a procedure then please telephone 496717 to make your own appointment.
