Social Prescriber

The aim is to connect people (18 years and over) to community groups and statutory services for practical and emotional support.

A social prescriber will work with you to identify your area of need, giving you time, focusing on ‘what matters to me’ and taking a holistic approach to health and wellbeing.

This covers a wide variety of areas, non-medical, as social prescribing helps different people in different ways. For example your concern could be related to

  • Social Care Needs
  • Housing
  • Finances
  • Isolation

A social prescriber will then help connect you to the right services or organisations. For example a local club or activity, or an organisation for mobility aids or carers.

Book an appointment via reception or self refer via Patient Access.
