Social Prescribing Service

What is Social Prescribing and who can it help?

We are delighted to let you know that we have new link workers for our new Age UK Social Prescribing Team, they are, Kate Reader, Peta Fluendy and Sarah Ward.

Social prescribing is a way in which patients can be supported to link with a range of local, activities, opportunities and support that can improve their health and wellbeing. It is about supporting and empowering patients to take control of their own health and wellbeing by giving people time, focusing on “what matters to me” and taking a holistic approach to people’s health and wellbeing. Social Prescribing is about developing stronger partnerships, between patients, their community and the supporting services.

Many things in life can make people feel unwell or affect their overall health and wellbeing negatively, and a medical prescription is sometimes only part of the solution.

Social Prescribing works for a wide range of people including people

Who are 18 years old and over

With long term health conditions

Who are lonely or isolated

Who have complex social needs that affect their wellbeing

Who have addiction issues – Alcohol, drugs, gambling

Who need housing or employment support

Who want to make lifestyle changes

Who need debt advice and financial support

How does Social Prescribing Work?

We will support Patients with up to 6 sessions.


Initial contact is typically made on the phone and follow up sessions can either be face to face in the GP Surgery, in the Patient’s home or continue over the phone.

From initial consultation, the Social Prescriber will help develop a personalised plan for the Patient to manage their health and wellbeing.

Referalls can be made from any staff based within the GP Practice so please contact us.  We will send a form to Age UK who will contact you direct.
