We offer a bereavement counselling service to Horley PCN patients in partnership with St Catherine’s Hospice.

Sessions are approx 50 minutes long and each patient can have up to nine sessions.

Growing Health Together invites people living and working in communities across East Surrey to collaborate, in order to co-create conditions in which everyone’s health and wellbeing can flourish. We’re proud founding partners for the initiative and are committed to ensuring that health and wellbeing exists outside of the formal health service, in the places we live.

In 2020, during the midst of the pandemic, we had the opportunity to bring new life to a disused building in the heart of Horley in Surrey. The two-storey building was initially used to host a Clinical Decision Unit, a vital resource in assessing patients during the pandemic and soon became home to the Alliance for Better Care, Healthy Horley Primary Care Network and Growing Health Together teams. All three shared the ambition to create a new community hub that would help to transform the way people manage their health in their community.
Since its launch, the venue has become home to many initiatives and we are proud of the positive impact that the space continues to have on people’s health and wellbeing.
The Hub is proud to house the masterpieces created by the residents of Smallbrook Care Home and Horley Infant School as part of the Intergenerational Art Project. Visitors can see the pieces throughout the building.
