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 pateints to have a better quality of life. Ultimately supporting them to improve their overall health and wellbeing, via connecting them to community groups and statutory services for support. For example; social groups like games club, financial and benefit advisors, gardening clubs, sport programmes and much more.

This social prescribing service supports the following GP practices:

Great Sutton Medical Centre
Old Hall Surgery
Whitby Health Partnership
York Road Group Practice
Hope Farm Medical Centre
Westminster Surgery
