The YOU Trust employs Social Prescribing Link Workers, Care Coordinators and Health Coaches on behalf of some innovative GP Practices In Portsmouth & South East Hampshire. However, other GP practices employ their own Social Prescribers directly. If you are a patient and would like to speak to a Social Prescriber then please ask the receptionist at your GP surgery to make an appointment.
Social Prescribing Partners
Our Social Prescribing Partners focus on what matters to someone, building trusting relationships with people to find the root cause of issues (e.g. Welfare, Housing & Social Isolation) and connect them to community groups, VCSE organisations, and services that can help.
Social Prescribers also work with the community to develop new social opportunities and groups.
Health and Wellbeing Coaches
Our Health and Wellbeing Coaches deliver one-to-one coaching sessions, creating personalised action plans centred on a person’s own goals and targets. They also deliver tailored ‘Lifestyle as medicine’ peer groups to support people in making positive changes to their physical health and mental wellbeing through exercise, increased activity, and mindfulness.
Care Coordinators ensure that people receive the coordinated care they depend on, which is responsive to their needs and co-produced with them.
Care Coordinators act as the go-to person if someone’s needs change or if there are questions relating to their care. They are the key point of contact for professionals working to support someone.
