The Primary Care Liaison Nurse for Substance Misuse currently runs a clinic at the surgery on Wednesdays.
He deals with patients who have problems with:
- Alcohol dependency
- Illicit drug dependency
- Cannabis use
- Prescription dependency (for example, to pain killers or sleeping tablets)
He will also see patients who are at risk of relapse from any of the above problems.
The GP may suggest a referral or patients can self-refer by booking an appointment at reception.
