Social Prescribing

Social Prescribing – a service designed to support you to find non-medical solutions to improve your health and well-being.

Perhaps you are feeling anxious, lonely, struggling with making healthy lifestyle choices, wanting to live well and independently as you grow older….?

Did you know that over a third of GP appointments are for non-medical matters – that’s where the Social Prescribing Team comes in.

We give you time to tell us what’s important to you.

We can support you to access lots of different things like counselling, benefits advice, weight loss services, community groups, information to help you age well and stay living independently.

We can help you make referrals to specialist services or help you look for volunteering opportunities within the community. We offer one to one goal based support to maximise your wellbeing and help you make the changes you want to.

We base much of our support around the 5 Ways to Wellbeing.
