Social Prescribing

Some problems can’t be fixed by medicine alone; with Social Prescribing you can get support for more than medical issues. Our social prescribers can help you take control of your health and the care you receive. We are here to focus on what matters to you and to support you to navigate services within your community that may benefit you.

This could include linking you to services that may focus on:

  • Social connection or hobbies and skills
  • Healthy lifestyles
  • Befriending or counselling support groups
  • Housing, benefits & financial advice
  • Employment, education, or volunteering

Accessing social prescribing is free but some external services may require a fee. However, the social prescriber will work to find alternatives if required.

If you wish to access the social prescribing service or find out more information please ask at reception.
