What is Social Prescribing?


A lot of things affect our health and wellbeing and our GP’s work very hard to look after our physical and mental health.

However, sometimes there are other issues that are difficult to deal with that cannot be solved by medication or medical treatments.

Social prescribing is here to support you with these problems. We give you time, compassion and a safe space to find out what really matters to you.
