Dental Problems - If you have a dental problem you will need to make an appointment with your dentist. If you are unable to make an appointment or if you are not registered with a dentist, please call the Cornwall Dental Helpline on 01872 354375.
Social prescribing is the term used for how the Stennack Surgery refer patients to ‘services’ in their community instead of offering only medicalised solutions. The first point of referral at the Stennack Surgery is normally through Ruth Todd our Community Co-ordinator, Symon Stephens our Social Prescribing Link Worker or Manda Brookman our Community Maker.
They can talk to patients about the things that matter to them. Together they can co-produce a social prescription that will help to improve their health and wellbeing. However patients can get involved by just coming down to anyone of the activities on offer from the Community Hub.
The community activities range from yoga classes to pop-up cafes, from walking clubs to gardening, alongside a host of many other groups and activities.
Social Prescribing is really taking off here at the Stennack Surgery and is available to absolutely everyone. Research shows that patients who are lonely or isolated; patients with mild mental health issues who may be anxious or depressed; and, those who struggle to engage effectively with services often find huge benefits from Social Prescribing.
It is also relevant to people with wider social issues such as poverty, debt, housing, relationship problems, all of which impact on their health and wellbeing. Very often these patients may have frequent repeat visits to their GP or to their local emergency department – effectively trapping them in a ‘revolving door’ of services.
The Stennack Surgery Community Hub formed in 2018 from the Waiting Room with help from Volunteer Cornwall and Active Plus and is now home to a wide variety of services and community activities throughout the week. In the near future The Community Hub will undergo a major refurbishment with financial backing from the lovely Friends of Stennack Surgery (FOSS) group. This refurbishment is fully supported by our Patient Participation Group who recently conducted a patient survey to help aid the redesign, the results of which are available below:

The surgery strives to provide high quality care that meets the needs of its patients and carers. To do this effectively we have a FOSStering Community Group that consists of patients, surgery representatives and local community services who come together to discuss the work of the practice and identify any areas for improvement. These meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month at The Stennack Surgery. Members are requested to attend and contribute to the meetings. Aims include ensuring decisions are influenced by patients and carers to enable them to participate in the work of the practice. Everyone is welcome to attend these meetings, please contact reception if you are interested.
The Stennack Sensory Garden is in full swing, their aim is to create a relaxing green space at the front of the Stennack Surgery for all to enjoy. The project will take place over a 12 month period, if you are interested in being involved please contact Manda Brookman from Volunteer Cornwall by email at MandaB@volunteercornwall.org.uk
