Social prescribing is a service provided by non-healthcare professionals called link workers. Link workers aim to support individuals with a range of social, emotional, or practical needs through referrals to non-clinical services in the community. These services can include day centres, charities, and community groups.
We are a practice that encourages our patients to increase their well-being through physical activity and healthy diets. Social prescribing is a great way to get involved in the community and participate in exciting activities that not only improve your health but also benefit the environment. If there are nature-based activities that interest you, please speak to Social Prescriber Shellie.
Patients have already participated in the following activities:
