Many things can affect our health and wellbeing. People often visit their GP because they feel isolated or lonely. Or they might feel stressed by work, money or housing problems. Sometimes it’s the stress of managing different long-term conditions.
That’s where social prescribing can help.
It often starts with a conversation. It might be a conversation with your doctor, or with another person in the practice team. They can refer you to one of the team, like a wellbeing coach, or you can contact the wellbeing coach yourself.
The wellbeing coach is there to listen to you, and give you strategies to enhance your wellbeing. They can also put you in touch with people and activities that might help you feel better.
Supporting you to improve your health and wellbeing by:
- Focusing on what matters most to you
- Helping you to reach your goals and your ambitions
- Connecting you to local community services and activities
