Social Prescribers

Social Prescribers are link workers that have access to a wide range of local agencies, best suited to help with your overall health and wellbeing.

In this PCN you might see a Social Prescriber for the following reasons:

  • Helping  to access services from social care, pharmacies, allied health professionals, fire service, housing associations, job centres, employment and/or volunteering support
  • Needing help with debt, benefits and housing
  • Loneliness, accessing social groups, mental health and support groups

To request an appointment with our Social Prescribing Team, submit an online consultation request or contact your GP surgery reception to ask for an appointment, stating the reason why you would like to be seen and the best telephone number to call you on and one of the Social Prescribers will arrange an appointment.
