Your Health, Your Story – call out for Southwark residents who would like to share their health story on film

You are invited to take part in an exciting new initiative to help shape local health services by sharing your experience with GPs, nurses, hospital doctors and health managers. This will enable GPs, hospital and community services, adult social services and others involved in your care and support to work better together for you.

Do you have three or more long term conditions?

We are looking for people who have three or more of the following conditions:

  • diabetes
  • kidney disease
  • asthma
  • COPD
  • mental health needs
  • heart disease or stroke

Do you have risk factors that could affect your health?

We are looking for people who have two or more of the following risk factors:

  • high blood pressure
  • high cholesterol
  • a high HbA1c reading (pre- diabetes)
  • overweight or obese (BMI >25)
  • smoker
  • currently on pain medication

If the answer to both questions is yes then we need your help!

If you’ are interested in taking part in this new initiative you will be visited by a researcher at your home or somewhere that is convenient for you to talk about your life and your health (within the next two weeks). The researchers will make a short film to capture your experience which will be used at a large training session for GPs and practice nurses and will be put on the NHS Southwark Clinical Commissioning Group Website.

You will be paid £20 for your time.

If you would like to know more or you would like to take part please do get in touch.
