Welcome to the Somerset Emotional Wellbeing (SEW) podcast!
In this episode, Health for Many Groups, our hosts Dr. Peter Bagshaw and Dr. Andrew Tresidder are joined by Lee Reed from NHS Somerset to discuss why health inclusion is important, how health and care services need to continue to work hard proactively to support different groups and why it is important to tailor support instead of relying on a one-size-fits-all approach to healthcare.
The SEW podcast is a free weekly show hosted by Dr. Andrew Tresidder, Dr. Peter Bagshaw and Dr. Sarah Coope. 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!
We would like to hear from you! If you would like to ask us a question or let us know what you think of the show, or if you would like to suggest guests and topics for us to cover, please get in touch with us by emailing: [email protected]
