Social Prescribing

Our Team are passionate about supporting our patients in living healthy and happy lives and we, therefore, promote social prescribing as a way of linking our patients with other services that may help them.

Our patients can also book to see a social prescriber called Maria who attends the Practice from our local Primary Care Network (PCN). To book an appointment please speak to Reception.

What is Social Prescribing?

A growing movement

Social prescribing is a growing movement that connects people with a range of non-clinical programmes, services and events in their local community – like walking groups, mental health counselling, debt management advice, employability skills, volunteering, family fitness, healthy cooking programmes, mindfulness sessions, and the ‘green prescription’ of gardening and food growing.

A service that goes beyond the GPs prescription pad

Designed to support people with a wide range of social, emotional or practical needs.

It seeks to address people’s needs across a number of areas such as physical activity, diet and nutrition, mental health and social support. It is often referred to as a ‘more than medicine’ approach to health and wellbeing based on the fact that the majority of long term conditions can be prevented by lifestyle change alone.
