Social Prescribing is here!

Social prescribing is a way for GPs and Practice Nurses (and other health professionals) to refer people to a link worker. Link workers give people time, focusing on ‘what matters to me’ and taking a holistic approach to people’s health and wellbeing. They connect people to community groups and statutory services for practical and emotional support. Link workers also support existing community groups to be accessible and sustainable, and help people to start new groups, working collaboratively with all local partners. For more information on what they do, go to www.england.nhs.uk/personalisedcare/social-prescribing

If you would like to be referred to our new Link Worker, please talk to the GP
