Social Prescribing

Could a referral to Social Prescribing help you?

What is Social Prescribing?

Many things affect wellbeing and caring for ourselves can involve alternatives to medicine.

Social Prescribing is a personalised approach that links people to activities, groups, and services in their community to meet their practical, social, and emotional needs.

It all starts with a conversation about what matters to you.

A Social Prescribing Link Worker will give you time to focus on what is important to you and help you identify and achieve your individual wellbeing goals.

We can connect you to a wide range of community groups and services. This may include creative groups, such as art, dance or singing or other activities that increase physical activity or time spent outdoors.

We can signpost you to agencies that provide opportunities for volunteering or getting back into training or work as well as trusted sources of advice, practical and emotional support.

Social Prescribing is a short-term intervention over a few weeks which puts you in the driving seat and in control of your wellbeing.


How can I access Social Prescribing support?

Your clinician may suggest a referral during your consultation, but you can also call the Surgery and self-refer.

We do have a waiting list for our service, but this is normally only a couple of weeks.
