Social prescribing

What is social prescribing?                      

Social prescribing is a non-medical solution to social, emotional or practical issues that may be causing health problems, or making them worse.

It’s a way to access extra services and support, through a GP, nurse or health care professional, to improve your health and wellbeing.

Benefits to you

  • Social prescribing can lead to many positive outcomes, including:
  • Helping you feel healthier and happier
  • Getting you involved with your local community
  • Linking you with new friends and like-minded individuals
  • Helping you back into work or accessing training and education
  • Helping you manage financial problems.
