A message from the team:

Many things affect your health and wellbeing. GPs tell us that a lot of people visit them feeling isolated or lonely. Or they might be stressed out by work, money and housing problems. Sometimes it’s the stress of managing different long-term conditions.

That’s where social prescribing comes in. It starts with a conversation. It might be the conversation you’ve just had with your doctor. Or with another person in the practice team. Or you might not have felt able to talk to anyone about what’s going on for you.

Your Social Prescribing Link Worker is there to listen to you, and put you in touch with the people and activities that might help you to feel better. 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.
