The Glasgow Satellite Service (GSS) is a project funded by the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland Self Management Fund. It provides support to people living in the Glasgow area, and negates the need to travel to our premises in Airdrie.
This service was developed in partnership with Links Worker Programme to meet an identified need for people in Glasgow. Therapeutic support and complementary therapies are provided to clients, at various locations within the city, including GP Practices where the Links Practitioners are based. In addition, our twelve week self management course (Hands on Health) is delivered, as is a virtual peer support group. Therapy/counselling can be accessed either face to face or remotely, as can the Hands on Health course.
Clients can access any aspect of the service, there is no requirement to be involved in all parts. The only exception to that is the virtual peer support group, this follows on from completion of the Hands on Health course.
