Jemma Millman, Chief Operating Officer, Dorking Health Care GP Federation spoke on the award of the First Steps to support contract:
As the need for support with emotional and mental wellbeing continues to increase in Surrey, I’m delighted to have this opportunity to shape a local service that will help people get the right help at the right time.
Dorking Health Care (DHC) GP Federation has a long history of supporting physical, emotional and psycho-social wellbeing. Our teams work together to develop new services based on what people need most and we believe strongly in the benefits of adopting a holistic approach.
We’re really looking forward to working alongside the Neighbourhoods to co-design and pilot a service that truly reflects local needs and makes a real difference to people’s lives.
