You will be working in a multi-disciplinary team alongside other professionals such as; Peer Practitioners, psychological therapists, social prescribers and a dedicated GP Lead.
Hours will be mainly worked in GP surgeries located within the Andover area, the PCN offices in the Chantry Centre in Andover or at Andover Wellbeing Centre, although there may be some opportunities for home working.
