Advice in GP’s Surgeries

A pilot scheme that offers people free advice services at a number of local Guildford GP surgeries has been a great success, and will now continue and be expanded.

Set up by Guildford Advice Services (itself a project to promote collaboration between advice agencies in the borough) the nine-month pilot was launched in February 2015 with advisors from Guildford Citizens Advice offering their services at four Guildford GP surgeries.

Topics clients can receive advice on include:

  • · Debt
  • · Money advice
  • · Consumer rights
  • · Employment
  • · Housing
  • · Immigration
  • · Welfare benefits
  • · Neighbourhood disputes
  • · Education and healthcare…
  • …and many more.
Now, with funding for a further year from the Guildford & Waverley Clinical Commissioning Group and Guildford Borough Council, there are sessions at the following GP surgeries:

Mondays:

Alternate weeks at Merrow Park Surgery (clients do not need to be registered as patients at the surgery)

Telephone the surgery on 01483 503 331 for an appointment (these are in the morning).
