What is Social Prescribing.

Many things affect your health and wellbeing. We often find we have a lot of visits from patients who are feeling isolated, lonely, stressed out by work, money and housing problems. Sometimes its the stress of managing different long term condition.

That's where social prescribing comes in. It starts with a conversation. It might be the conversation you've had with one of our nurses, doctors or another member of our team. They will refer you to a social prescribing link worker. The link worker is there to listen to you, and put you in touch with the people and activities that might help you feel better.

Link workers might also introduce you to a community group, a new activity or a local club. Or they might help you find legal advice or debt counselling. They might just help you find information and guidance: a bit of inside knowledge on your situation or what local resources there are available. They could even support you to create something new such as a gardening club, a fishing group, a 'mens shed' or knit and knatter group.

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.
