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. They will refer you to a social prescribing link worker.
The 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.
Did you know we have an on site social prescriber at the surgery? She can also visit patients in their own homes.
Her name is Lisa reeve and she is at the surgery on a Tuesday and a Friday
