Sources of Support (social prescribing)
Social prescribing is an approach which is being used in GP Practices to help patients with non- medical issues which are impacting upon their mental health and wellbeing. The link worker is part of the GP Practice team and is an experienced practitioner who will work with you on the issues which are causing you the most concern and identify services/community groups/activities which are best placed to help you.
