Social prescribing is a new NHS initiative that offers patients the opportunity to explore extra support taking into consideration the holistic needs of the individual. It enables patients to make their own decisions to improve health, wellbeing and independence.

Our Social Prescribing Service will initially receive a referral from your GP practice team. This will be followed up by one of our Social Prescribing workers, who will contact you to discuss the referral and arrange to a one-to-one meeting with you.

Together, we will be able to

  • Help explore what issues and challenges you have and what support you require
  • Help you identify and access local services and activities that can benefit you
  • Encourage you to plan how you will overcome your issues and challenges and meet your desired goals
