Social Prescribing

Social Prescribing supports people with a range of social, emotional or practical needs, focusing on improving health and wellbeing in a holistic way putting the person in the centre of their care. They can support people with feelings of loneliness, as well as for debt, employment or housing problems, or difficulties with their relationships.

Studies show that patients with Social Prescriptions get better and feel better faster than those treated with medication alone.

Our social prescribing link workers help with a whole range of non-clinical needs that can have a profound effect on your health and wellbeing. They have time to listen and work with patients over a number of weeks both face to face and by phone.

Although they’re unable to do it for you, they’ll be there for you the entire way, listening to your needs and providing all of the information that organisations and groups in the local area.

The Social Prescribers can put you in touch with community support and groups, as well as come along with you to get you started. They can help you plan what you want to do and get there.

North Bucks PCN Social Prescribing Service is provided by The Patient Support Service.
