Cost Of Living Help and Advice – St Georges Patient Participation Group
The members St Georges Medical Centre Patient Participation Group Steering Committee have come together to gather some helpful information during this difficult time. The team have pulled free information from organisations who can provide help and support.

If anyone has information to add, please contact us via email at email@example.com or mention it to the Receptionist on your visit.
As Energy bills rise, scammers are seeking to take advantage of unsuspecting consumers. Their latest trick involves sending a malicious text message link that asks you to sign up for the governments latest energy grant. Energy Grants are being automatically applied to your bill – do not click any text message or email links, do not give your card or account details and do not pay any money for support with this.
