Social Prescribing

Are you struggling to cope with social, emotional or practice issues that may be having a negative impact on your general health and wellbeing?  Talk to your Doctor about the new social prescribing service available in your area.

Social prescribing is a non-medical solution to help you deal with issues you may be facing.

Your GP, nurse or health professional can refer you to your local social prescribing service so you can have a face to face chat with a Living Well Officer who can help you access services and support to help you tackle a one-off problem or longer term issue.

Benefits to this include:

  • Getting involved in local community activities
  • Helping manage financial matters
  • Links to activities to help make new friends and meet like-minded people
  • Help build confidence and self-esteem to take on new challenges
  • Help to get back into work by linking to volunteering and training opportunities
  • Improving physical and mental health.
