Social Prescribing Link Workers

It is not only your GP who can support you to feel better.

How Social Prescribing Works

Our Social Prescribers can take the time to listen to you to find out what really matters to you.

They will help you explore other things that you can access or do to help you feel better.

They will work with you to find out what issues are affecting your health and wellbeing.
And support you to access services, groups, and resources in the community to improve your wellbeing and have more control over your own health.
Supporting you to become the best version of you.

Our team can support you with things like:

  • Getting used to having a long-term condition.
  • Feeling stressed or low.
  • Getting advice on housing or benefits.
  • Feeling lonely or isolated.
  • Getting out and more active in the community.
  • Support with your mental health.
  • Getting involved in a new hobby or interest.

Here are some videos to explain the Social Prescribing role a bit more:
