Social Prescribers

Social Prescribing involves link workers focusing on ‘what matters to the patient’. They connect people to community groups or statutory services for practical and emotional support. The Social Prescriber Team also work with external services to help patients with housing and debt issues, getting back to work, helping to find volunteering opportunities or supporting those who are lonely or isolated with a range of befriending services or events. They also run groups for carers, the bereaved and those living with dementia.
