Social Prescribing helps you to explore extra services that may support you to improve your health, wellbeing and independence. Your doctor isn’t the only person who can help you feel better!
Many things affect a person’s health and wellbeing. You may be feeling stressed by work, money worries or housing problems. Sometimes it can be the stress of managing a long-term condition like diabetes or arthritis.
That’s where social prescribing comes in. Your Practice has a dedicated Social Prescribing Link Worker who is there to listen and help access people and activities that can support you and help you to feel better.
Together you will be able to:
1. Explore what is important for your life and wellbeing
2. Identify the local activities and services you can benefit from
3. Gain support and encouragement to start using services that can help you.
4. Improve your health and wellbeing by addressing what matters to you and giving you control over your health.
If you would like to access the service please speak to our reception and let them know what type of help you would like.
