How Does Social Prescribing Work?

The Rushcliffe Social Prescribing Service is based on the five ways to wellbeing. This is an evidence based model that can improve your physical and emotional health.

Your social prescribing link worker could connect you to a community group, a new activity or a local club, or they might help you access legal advice or debt counselling. They might just help you find information and guidance by using a bit of inside knowledge on your situation or what local resources there are.

Our approach

  • Signposting to local resources
  • Health coaching
  • One-to-one support

Referral

The service is by referral only and starts with a conversation. It might be a conversation you have with a doctor, or with another person in the GP Practice team. If they think you will benefit they may refer you to a social prescribing link worker.
