Social Prescribing

Taking care of your health involves more than just medicine and that is why we work in partnership with the South Waveney Primary Care Network to provide a range of social prescribing support via local GP's in Kessingland, Bungay, Beccles, Halesworth and Reydon.

Our Link Workers focus on ‘what matters to the client’ and take a holistic approach to people’s health and wellbeing. They connect people to community groups and statutory services for
practical and emotional support.

Our team can help you with a range of issues, including:

 

Lots of things have a negative impact on health and wellbeing, including lack of money. poor education, quality of housing, low self-esteem, isolation, relationship difficulties, and both physical and mental health
problems. It is estimated that 20-40% of patients consult their GP for primarily social problems, including social welfare advice. A 10-minute GP consultation isn’t enough to cover multiple health conditions – let
alone wider social issues! Social Prescribing can reduce pressure on services Рincluding GPs, social care and A&t and most importantly, it has shown benefits in 3 key areas Рmental health outcomes, community wellbeing and social exclusion
