Domestic Violence Confidential Helpline
We are a domestic violence and abuse aware practice
We know that for many victims of domestic abuse the GP practice is the only safe place they can go without their violent partner or family member present. We also know that many people concerned about how they are treating their partner or other family members also go to see their GP.
IRIS is a new domestic violence and abuse support service for men, women and children.
Our GPs, nurse and receptionists have had specialist domestic violence training. They are able to refer consenting patients who may be men, women and children to a specialist IRIS support workers. The IRIS support workers can offer emotional and practical support and will help you to access a range of specialist services.
If you would like support because:
- You are being hurt or frightened by someone at home
- You are worried your behaviour may be hurting or frightening someone you live with
Then please talk to our Practice staff.
