What is Social Prescribing?

  • A service that is embedded in your GP surgery alongside your GP and other practice staff, that aims to connect you to services and/or activities that may help improve your health and wellbeing.
  • A confidential space to talk
  • A space to explore issues that are negatively affecting your physical and mental health and overall wellbeing; those things ‘Matter to You’
  • Practical, helpful and non-judgemental support
  • A place to receive advice, guidance and advocacy
  • We also support with other services involved in your care
  • Signposting and/or referral to services, support and community groups
  • A service to improve hope for the future, social connection & independence
