Social Prescriber

The social prescribing service supports you to take control of your own health, make positive lifestyles changes and decide what you would like to do to feel healthier.

The service is here to listen to you and connect you with opportunities in the community that might help you to feel better. This could include supporting you with things like managing your stress, loneliness, finding social groups, learning new skills, physical activity or getting information on employment, benefits, housing and legal advice.

The social prescriber attached to our surgery is Maria Paukkeri.

If you are 18 or over, you can ask your clinician to refer you to this service.
