Quality care checklist and local support

The depression and anxiety checklist can help you better understand how you’ve been feeling recently and some possible options including some helpful local options you can access directly without needing to go through your GP practice. It can also help support any consultation you have in the practice. The checklist is not submitted to the practice.
