Ask your Pharmacist about Social Prescribing

Pharmacists can now refer clients to SPRING Social Prescribing.  GP's and Mental Health teams are under added pressure due to COVID-19. To enable more people to avail of the help and support of SPRING Social Prescribing, Pharmacists can now refer patients for a social prescription.

If you are experiencing social isolation, suffering from chronic pain, need help, and support to address your social, emotional, or practical needs then ask your pharmacist about a Social Prescription today.

Social prescribers are here to help and support people to better health and wellbeing. 

 

 

 

We are still here to help you feel supported and connected throughout the lock-down period.

The "Connect Well" service ensures all clients are supported remotely and engaged with Social Prescribing.

Connect Well is a new remote service provided by social prescribers during Covid-19. Each Social Prescriber is in contact with each and every client by telephone, text, or video link.
