Social Prescribing

Social Prescribing at Claypath and University Medical Practice

What is social prescribing – video

Your Social Prescriber can work with you to identify your non-medical needs and support you to access the right services for you. If you are 18+ years of age, your Social Prescriber can support you to be:

  • more in control and better able to manage your own health and wellbeing;
  • more physically active;
  • better able to manage practical issues such as debt, housing and mobility;
  • more connected to others and less isolated or less lonely.

What to expect?

Your Social Prescriber:

  • is practical, helpful, and will not judge you;
  • can help you decide what you’d like to do to feel healthier and happier;
  • can help you find and visit activities, services or therapies of your choice
  • can support you to feel comfortable, overcome any barriers, and work towards a better future

What happens now?

You will work with your Social Prescriber for up to 8 sessions. Together you’ll agree a 1:1 plan to support you to reach your goals and improve your physical, mental or social wellbeing. You will explore what’s important for your life, and identify local activities and services you might benefit from.
