Community and Wellbeing open day

Image: abstract image of communityOn Monday 27 September, the local Integrated Care Partnership supported by Epsom & Ewell Borough Council, are providing an opportunity to meet over 20 organisations from our local area who provide a range of services and advice to help support happier, healthier lives.

The Information Open Day will be open from 10am to 4pm at Bourne Hall, Ewell and entrance to the event is free. 

The Integrated Care Partnership (consisting of Old Cottage Hospital, Fitznells Manor Surgery, Stoneleigh Medical Centre and Cox Lane Surgery) is undertaking the Information Open Day of community services available to its patients, and the wider public.

The exhibitors have been invited to represent a full range of social needs; from mental health support teams – Talking Therapies and Mary Frances Trust, Age Concern, Diabetes UK, Action for Carers, Epsom and Ewell Health Walks as well as the Community Police Team.

Bill Cassidy, Business Director at the Integrated Care Partnership said, “Whilst the Integrated Care Partnership supports its patients through medical treatment, we believe that many requests for support and advice are borne out of a need for an increased awareness of the wider community support services available.  We felt that as a Primary Care Network, and the largest General Practice in the Epsom and Ewell area, we should facilitate this drive to inform our patients and have joined with Epsom & Ewell Borough Council to provide the first of regular open ‘surgeries’, with them kindly hosting us at Bourne Hall for the day.  We hope to deliver these on a regular basis going forward”.

Primary Care Networks were established in 2019 with the specific remit to develop social, wellbeing, educational and medical services targeted to the specific needs of its local population.
