What you’ll take away:
“DFV Linker helped me get my ducks in a row, so I was able to leave safely at my own pace, without having to report to the police and make things worse. I know a lot of places have waiting lists for caseworkers, but this lady called me the day after my GP sent her the referral and help was provided straight away.”

“At first, I thought – do we really need the DFV Linker service? But after all our conversations, I'm seeing the signs and asking the questions, and now I'm really glad that you’re here. Your support for my patient has been really helpful. She said she was really happy with the support, she's glad she can see you at our practice and that she felt really comfortable speaking with you.”
