Social Prescribing

Social Prescribing in Your GP Practice

Some problems can’t be fixed by medicine alone; with Social Prescribing you can get specialist 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 could benefit you.

This could include linking you to services that may focus on:
• Social connections or hobbies & skills
• Healthy lifestyles
• Befriending or counselling support groups
• Housing, benefits & financial advice
• Employment, education or volunteering

Accessing the Social Prescribing service is free – 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 please contact the surgery for more information.
