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 have complex social needs which affect their wellbeing.

Social prescribers can easily refer people to link workers from a wide range of local agencies, including general practice, pharmacies, multi-disciplinary teams, hospital discharge teams, allied health professionals, fire service, police, job centres, social care services, housing associations and voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations.

  • identifying factors that may be impacting your health and wellbeing.
