Show Notes

Welcome to the Somerset Emotional Wellbeing (SEW) podcast!

In this episode, Accessing Trusted Health Information, our hosts Dr. Andrew Tresidder and Dr. Peter Bagshaw are joined by Alex Cunningham-Scott from Somerset Libraries and Veronica Price from Somerset Foundation Trust to discuss how to access trusted health information for Health Information Week 2021!

During the conversation, they discuss how you can identify trusted health information online, how you can find reliable health information in your local library and which health books and resources they recommend personally.

The SEW podcast is a free weekly show hosted by Dr. Andrew Tresidder and Dr. Peter Bagshaw. In each episode, the doctors discuss a different topic related to mental and emotional wellbeing and often invite expert guests to join them in conversation. The show is aimed at the people of Somerset and beyond; the advice and guidance provided should apply to anybody who needs it, whenever they need it.

All episodes of SEW are now available to listen to free through Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Deezer, Google Podcasts, Amazon Podcasts, Somerset Emotional Wellbeing or wherever you get your podcasts!
