We have the opportunity to promote voluntary sector services directly to Reading’s GPs via their weekly electronic newsletter. The newsletter now includes a ‘Spotlight on the Voluntary Sector’  where each week we can include a short item about a specific service or event which helps to maintain and improve people’s health and wellbeing.

Examples could be a support group for people with a long-term health condition, activities to reduce loneliness and isolation, or sessions you offer to encourage people to be more active.

The key is to tell GPs about how your services/activities can improve the wellbeing of their patients. Send a very brief article (one paragraph) which can include links to further information to sarah.morland@rva.org.uk. If there is a specific event that you would like highlighted, please let me know so we can ensure it is included in good time.
