Online referral

Time to Talk Health is a free NHS Service for residents registered with a West Sussex GP who are in need of support to cope/manage with some of the following long-term health conditions:

  • Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes
  • A cardiac (heart) condition.
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary (lung) Disease (COPD)
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Asthma
  • Musculoskeletal pain

Living with any of these conditions can be difficult to manage. Patients may become worried, anxious or low in mood, which can lead to deteriorating health. They may benefit from support either to adjust to a new diagnosis or at a later stage as their condition progresses. Our friendly qualified team of therapists and healthcare practitioners work with patients and their nurses and doctors in order to achieve the outcomes they want, for example to:

Make and sustain healthy lifestyle changes – no matter how big or small.
Better manage medication.
Overcome fears, anxieties or low mood related to living with their condition(s).
Reduce the impact of the condition(s) on work, family life and other activities.
Improve knowledge and understanding of the condition(s) and related symptoms.
Working closely with a range of other professionals we offer a variety of interventions to improve health and wellbeing, such as:

Phone consultations at a time that suits.
One-to-one sessions.
Group work with others who experience the same symptoms.
