The social prescribing service provide support and information to patients who have social or economic issues that affect their health and wellbeing. Social Prescribers take a holistic approach and give time to their patients to identify what matters most to them and what they feel they need to improve their circumstance and their wellbeing. From these conversations, social prescribers co-create an action plan with the patient to help them self-manage their concerns and signpost to appropriate services.
