Social prescribing

A Social Prescriber is here to help patients make changes to improve their social, physical and mental wellbeing by linking them with appropriate, non-medical support and guidance such as:-

  • Healthy Living
  • Weight management
  • Lifestyle advice
  • Supporting independence
  • Mobility and equipment
  • Looking after someone
  • Getting out and about
  • Home adaptations
  • Money worries
  • Social inclusion

Social Prescribing also includes “Green” and “Blue” prescribing where nature and water activities are encouraged to improve a patient’s physical and mental health, whilst often improving a person’s social life and support circle.

Please contact reception to book.
