SPRING Social Prescribing has adapted its delivery service during Covid-19 to ensure all clients 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.
GP’s refer patients to the community for non-medical support.
Patients receive 1-1 community support for social, emotional or practical needs.
People are connected to suitable programmes, activities and services that best meet their particular needs.
People make decisions about their own health and feel empowered as they engage with others.
The SPRING Social Prescribing Project is a partnership between Bogside & Brandywell Health Forum, the Healthy Living Centre Alliance and Scottish Communities for Health and Wellbeing.
The project has a network of 30 community health partners delivering Social Prescribing services.
