What is Social Prescribing:
​"Many things affect your health and well being. GPs tell us that a lot of people visit them feeling isolated or lonely. Or they might be stressed out by work, housing problems or managing long term conditions" Social Prescribing can help you have more control over your own health and find ways to improve how you feel in a way that suits you... this may include links to local groups/resources, personalised care planning and support with motivation, roles, routines and meaningful activity to help you feel better.

Natalie will work closely with our Occupational Therapist - Chantelle Martin, to help you with your non-medical needs.
