IMPORTANT INFORMATION


All appointments are subject to cancellation or rescheduling.  All appointments will take place remotely, where possible.  If you think you may have Coronavirus, please visit the NHS 111 website, where you will be able to check your symptoms and get some information on how to self-isolate. 


If you have any other URGENT medical need, please telephone the surgery and ask for a call back from a member of the clinical team, where you will be given a telephone call or video consultation. A very small number or patients may need to be seen in the surgery.  These patients will be given special instructions.  ONLY COME TO THE SURGERY IF YOU ARE SPECIFICALLY INSTRUCTED TO DO SO.

Good Neighbours Coventry

The Good Neighbours Coventry Scheme is a project which has been developed by local churches (HOPE Coventry and Together for Change), in partnership with Age UK. It's primary aim is to improve health and wellbeing amongst older people. 

Working collaboratively, faith organisations and Age UK Coventry are seeking to engage with isolated and lonely older people by developing existing social networks and using existing community resources to enable residents to help each other.  This could take the form of group activities, 1:1 befriending support, or low level practical assistance.

The project will increase the range of friendship opportunities and activities available for older people within Coventry, as well as significantly increasing reach to isolated and / or lonely older people to help them engage with their communities and maintain their independence.

If you know anyone over 50 who might benefit from a weekly visit from a befriender, a local coffee morning or friendship group, or simple practical help, please get in contact. Equally, if you have half an hour at any point in your week spare to offer friendship over a cup of tea to a local older person, we would love to hear from potential volunteers too.

Training sessions are run monthly across Coventry, check out the Facebook page or email the project manager, Jess Day-Pollard, on goodneighbourscoventry@gmail.com. The training session will equip you for befriending and assisting older people in the local area from 30 minutes per week with confidence and safety.
