CALL for help about the economic downturn

Good to see the Welsh Assembly Government recognising the impact the credit crunch could potentially be having on our health and well-being. I‘ve heard from some members who’re seeing more cases of patients coming to them about anxiety and stress issues, with money worries being at the forefront of most people’s minds.

The WAG has set up C.A.L.L. (Community Advice and Listening Line) which doctors may wish to suggest to anyone they see struggling to cope with financial pressures.

CALL is accessible via a freephone number – 0800 132 737, or by texting ‘help’ to 81066
