Social Prescribing - Shelton & Hanley PCN

Social Prescribing

Social prescribers are health professionals based in GP practices. We work closely with GPs to assist patients with their non-medical needs. We do this by helping them identify, 'what matters to them'. Working collaboratively to create a care plan, which may include referrals into local services and organisations within the community.

Our hope is for patients to have a better quality of life. We do this by supporting them to improve their overall health and wellbeing, through connecting them to community groups and statutory services for support. For example; social groups like a games club, financial and benefit advisors, gardening clubs, sports programmes and much more.
