We’re delighted to be releasing our review of the year 2019 to 2020. We hope that you will enjoy reading about how we have worked with and supported people during our last financial year.

Victoria Centre re-opens for appointments

We are very pleased to let you know that as of 24th August 2020 we will be providing limited appointments at the Victoria Centre. These are specifically to serve clients who are unable to use services remotely and strict hygiene rules must be observed. Please do not visit our centre without an appointment.

To allow us to observe social distancing and necessary safety practices we can only see a very limited number of people in the building. You can find out more about what we are doing and what your visit will be like on our Covid Information page.

If you are on the waiting list for ‘in-person’ services you will be contacted when an appointment is available for you. FDAMH’s ability to continue offering in-person services may be impacted by changes to local or national guidance, so please check our website for up-to-date information on our opening status.

Remote services, provided by telephone or online, are proving both convenient and effective for many of our clients. These will continue so that we can keep space at the centre free for those people who are unable to use these services.

More people can now self-refer to FDAMH’s Social Prescribing Service

Our Social Prescribing Service takes direct referrals from GP practices in the ‘Central Locality’. We have now opened up referrals so that patients at these practices can refer themselves to Social Prescribing, without having to go through their GP.

Central Locality practices are: Ark Medical Practice, Carron Medical Centre, Camelon Medical Practice, Graeme Medical Centre, Meeks Road Surgery, Wallace Medical Centre and Westburn Medical Practice.

Unfortunately we can’t take direct referrals for patients at other practices, however you can contact our Immediate Help Service instead.
