Patient Groups & Services
Did you know we offer these services here at our surgery?
IAPT - Wednesdays 9:00-17:00
Croydon IAPT is a free and confidential NHS service provided by the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.
They offer a range of psychological therapies to adults 18 years and over, who are registered with a Croydon GP.
IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) is a national programme that was created in 2005 after it was recognised that a very large percentage of the population suffer with problems like depression and anxiety at some point in their lives. Each county and London borough have their own local IAPT service that provides evidence based treatment for common problems like these.
Live Well - 10:00-12:00
Just Live Well is a 12 month, face-to-face service delivered by qualified advisors, which works with Croydon residents who might find it difficult to make changes in their life without additional support.
It is designed to provide support that can help you:

- improve mental wellbeing
The programme uses recognised coaching techniques such as motivational interviewing and goal-setting to help you make meaningful changes to your life
