Community Listening Service

Many of us find it helpful to talk, particularly during stressful events at home or work, or after a bereavement or loss.

Telling your story uninterrupted and judgment-free could help you to sort through your emotions. You may then be able to rediscover your strength and find a way forward.

The Community Listening Service provides 50 minute appointments with fully trained listeners on the phone or within your GP practice.

The service is available to anyone registered with a Tayside GP practice. Email tay.listening@nhs.scot, call 01382 423 116 or text 0796 777 1941 to make an appointment or find out more. Both staff-initiated and self-referrals are welcome.

The service made an immediate and immense difference to my stress levels… I cannot overstate the benefits of this service, and [the listener] was really wonderful to talk to
