Watton Medical Practice
Long Term Conditions - New Workshops delivered by the Wellbeing Service
The Wellbeing Service offers help and support to improve wellbeing and manage stress, low mood and anxiety. We aim to reduce the onset of mental ill health, prevent deterioration and promote recovery by offering a range of flexible services tailored to meet specific needs.
We would like to make your patients aware that we are now running free workshops for people in your area who have Diabetes or Coronary Heart Disease. Patients will need a Wellbeing assessment prior to attending a workshop. I have attached posters for both – if these can please be displayed in your waiting area.
Living Well with Diabetes
The course aims to help you understand how diabetes may affect you and its relationship to low mood and anxiety
Living Well with Coronary Heart Disease
The living well with coronary heart disease course is a course for people experiencing heart problems who would like to improve their wellbeing by learning ways to manage their stress, worry or low mood
These are 4 week workshops and run for 90 minutes, facilitated by an LTC trained clinician.
Held at: Ayton House, Wymondham
We have capped all sessions to 15 attendees maximum, as we would like to encourage more discussions about the LTC within the groups. Feedback suggests that having the space to share and talk and have that shared experience is beneficial with LTC’s. There is no expectation for anyone to share or talk though, if they don’t feel comfortable.
Please contact us if you have any questions

A Practical Guide to Healthy Caring
The advice in this booklet will help those who look after a friend or family member or have any form of caring responsibilities, but it is written to be particularly relevant for those who are about 65 years or older and are new to caring.

The surgery now has a facebook page. This will help us provide up to date and relevant information to our 12,301 patients. Please click on the link below.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those with minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues.
In order to ensure our surgery provides the service our patients want and deserve over the years to come, we have come together with two practices in nearby Thetford to form the Breckland Alliance. This means that staff from the Grove surgery and the School Lane surgery in Thetford will sometimes work at Watton, and all three surgeries' will develop new ways of working to ensure the best possible service for patients.
