What is Social Prescribing?
You can now get specialist support for more than just medical issues by talking to our Social Prescribers Hannah and Natasha, who will spend time with you, exploring what activities and/or local support could improve your health and wellbeing.
Social Prescribing is a way of linking people to the vast array of services, groups and activities provided locally to help people develop happier healthier lifestyles. That might mean being introduced to a community group, a new activity or local club, helping you to find financial advice, help around the house – helping you to find out what services and resources are available.
How can Social Prescribing help you?
Social prescribing can help you to have more control over your own health and find ways to improve how you feel in a way that suits you. Studies show that patients with social prescriptions get better and feel better faster than those treated with medicine alone. And because it works, it’s happening more and more.
