Social prescribing

Our social prescribing link workers help patients to get the right support. Many different patients will be referred to social prescribing link workers. They include:

  • People with long-term conditions
  • Low level mental health issues
  • Those who feel lonely or isolated

Link workers also help people with complex social needs.

Generally, patients speak with a link worker 6-12 times over a three month period. The link worker will connect them with activities, groups, and services in their community. This is for practical and emotional support to help them get back on their feet.

Patients can refer themselves to our social prescribers using the form below.
