Local Support and Services
Your life. Your needs. Your circle.
A comprehensive online directory of community services and health and social care in Gloucestershire has been developed by Gloucestershire County Council and Gloucestershire NHS Clinical Commissioning Group, in partnership with Healthwatch Gloucestershire.
The Your Circle website includes information pages with topics such as health, care and support, caring for others, money matters and benefits. It also has a directory of community based services, social clubs, care homes, GPs, dentists and voluntary organisations. For more help with the website, see the Your Circle User Guide
The site is managed by Gloucestershire County Council. Comments about the Your Circle website welcomed.
Health as a Social Movement
‘Theory into Practice’, a new report from the Royal Society of Arts, outlines steps NHS services can follow to mobilise local communities to prevent ill health.
When you’re looking for a health or care practitioner, it can be hard to know where to start. The Professional Standards Authority makes sure that the public is protected by independently assessing organisations which register practitioners not regulated by law, working both within and outside the NHS. These are Accredited Registers.
The registers help people get better care by ensuring that registrants are competent and trustworthy. They set standards for practitioners and take action to protect the public when necessary. They ensure that the information provided is clear and helps you to make informed choices about who to see and about the treatments, therapies, care and products on offer.
