A social prescription offers the kind of help that doesn’t come in a tube or a bottle.
The idea behind social prescribing is to help you to have more control over your own health and find ways to improve how you feel in a way that suits you.
Many things affect your health and wellbeing. A lot of people visit their Surgery feeling isolated, lonely or stressed. Studies show that patients with social prescriptions get better and feel better faster than those treated with medicine alone.
