Social Prescribing

We have a number of teams working with GP Surgeries specialising in Social Prescribing, Health Coaching, and Care Coordination. We work with people to find out what is important to them, linking them with all the great things they want to do that will have a positive impact on their physical and mental health.

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

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.
