Social prescribing involves helping patients to improve their health, wellbeing and social welfare by connecting them to community services which might be run by the council or a local charity.
Social prescribing works for a wide range of people, including people:
- with one or more long-term conditions
- who need support with their mental health
- who are lonely or isolated
- who have complex social needs which affect their wellbeing
Social prescribing link workers are becoming an integral part of the multi-disciplinary teams in primary care networks (PCN's) and we are lucky to have Ellie Moseley working closely with us to support us alongside medical treatment as part of personalised care.
