GPs provide aid for unemployed

An East London practice has been shortlisted for an achievement award for helping the unemployed back into work.

Employment charity Tomorrow's People shortlisted Chrisp Street Practice in Poplar.

The practice began working with Tomorrow's People in 2006 as part of the Getting East London Patients Working project. It enables a specialist employment adviser from the charity to be based at the practice to help patients get back into work, education or training.

The practice will discover at the end of this month whether it has won a Community Partner of the Year award. Practice manager Simon Robinson said: 'Individuals at our practice can now register with the Tomorrow's People adviser on a voluntary basis.'
