An Otley GP surgery will host a Bereavement and Carers’ Cafe next month
The event, which runs from 1pm to 2pm on Tuesday, April 7 is intended to offer help to members of the community who may be struggling with issues outside of everyday healthcare.
It is the latest in a series of such cafes to have been run by Westgate Surgery, which is part of OnePrimaryCare.
Practice manager at Westgate Surgery, Gemma Ellison, said: “These events are incredibly important to Otley residents as they provide a space for people to meet others who may be struggling with similar issues.
“It’s all about giving people the chance to talk and find support, and the team here is dedicated to providing this service.”
The practice prides itself in getting involved with the community and last year ran balance classes for the 50 and over age group and invited local schoolchildren to produce artwork to help raise awareness about mental health.
The winning entries to the art competition were then displayed at the surgery, which is currently welcoming new patient registrations and can be contacted on (01943) 660533.
