The Service

PEP is a free service for anyone who is over 18 and registered with a GP Practice in West Leeds. PEP is short for Patient Empowerment Project, which means that you make the decisions and we help you find a way to get there. Often when you are unwell you will need to go to your Doctor for a prescription but sometimes there are other things you can do to help yourself feel better, such as making changes to your lifestyle or dealing with the things that cause you stress. Sometimes it helps to be with other people who have similar experiences to you. The PEP team are employed by 3 different organisations; Barca-Leeds, Better Leeds Communities, Leeds MIND. They come from a range of backgrounds and have a great deal of knowledge of services that are available so can make finding the right thing for you much easier. Someone from the team can visit you at home or at the surgery to listen to your concerns and explore different options to help you manage your own health or do the things you would like to do but don’t know where to start.
