What is self-referral?

Did you know that there are some free NHS health services you can access without needing an appointment with your GP? This is called self-referral and could help you find the care you need quicker and more easily than going through your surgery. Alternatively please ask at reception for a referral form.

People often refer to this service with conditions that cause pain, stiffness, weakness, pins and needles or other symptoms. These types of problems can result in difficulty with daily tasks, sleep, work, leisure, or sport. Follow the link below for more information.

Your Community Connector

What is the service: The Community Connector provides truly personal support for people who may feel a little stuck with an aspect of their lives. They may be frequently attending GP surgeries for a primarily social need. The connector works alongside the individual and helps them to reconnect with their lives using their own strengths and resources and those of their community. The connector works across services, linking in with partner organisations, including drug and alcohol services, housing, social services and third sector groups. We can work with anyone over the age of 18 and do not have an upper age limit.

Who we are: Wiltshire Centre for Independent Living is a charity who have been commissioned by your PCN to employ your Community Connector. This is a preventive service with the aim is to support the people we work with to re-establish their life in their communities and reduce reliance on primary care services.

How to refer: We accept self-referrals or referrals from GP surgeries, supporting services and community groups.
