Social Prescribing

What is Social Prescribing

Social prescribing seeks to address peoples needs in a holistic way and aims to support individuals to take greater control of their own health. 

There are many different models for social prescribing, but most involve a link worker  who works with practice patients and helps them to access local sources of support.

If you feel that you would benefit from this service then please contact the Surgery and we will refer you to our link worker Louise Barcroft.

Please find below a detailed leaflet on everything you need to know about Social Prescribing and how it can improve your overall wellbeing.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

– A high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
– A new, continuous cough – this means you’ve started coughing repeatedly

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.
Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you’re staying at home.
