A community approach
to health & wellbeing

How does it work?

Social Prescribing acts as link between the health service and the community.  

GP Referral

GP’s refer patients to the community for non-medical support 

Patients receive 1-1 community support for a range of social, emotional or practical needs

Empowers people to make decisions about their own health and connects them to suitable programmes and services in the community such as; social cafes, yoga classes, counselling sessions, swimming lessons and many more

A digital platform is at the core of the project which connects GPs, patients and services, leading to better outcomes for people and communities 

Community approach to health and wellbeing which makes a difference to peoples lives 

Aims to reduce the number of patients making unnecessary appointments to their GP, ultimately taking pressure off NHS services
