Age UK Norfolk
Age UK Norfolk is providing free non-medical information and advice at 13 GP practices in South Norfolk for people over 65 and their carers. GPs and practice nurses are able to refer patients to the service, or patients can book their own appointment without referral if they wish. Our trained advisers, working with partner organisations, are available to provide practical help and support on a wide range of later life issues, including social care, benefits, Dementia support, befriending, caring for older relatives, help at home, housing options and Lasting Power of Attorney.
NHS South Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group and Norfolk County Council are funding the service, up to February 2016 as part of their “Better Care for Norfolk” and “Strong and Well” programmes.
The service is available in the following GP practices – Elmham, Mattishall, Roundwell, Cringleford, Wymondham Medical Centre, Lawns and Parish Fields Diss, Watton, Heathgate and Old Mill Poringland, Pulham Market, Harleston and Loddon.
Sessions take place once a week in the morning although some sessions are in the afternoon. Please contact your surgery to make an appointment.
