Social Prescribing

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

What is social prescribing?

It is a free service linking patients to extra services and support within your local community and Bristol. 

Our Social Prescriber Link Worker is Grace Morgan-Tait.

How does it work?

A referral is made to a link worker who will make contact with you to arrange a time to meet. You can access up to six 1-1 sessions based at your GP practice which may include:

  1. Exploring what is important for your health and wellbeing.
  2. Identifying the local activities and services you can benefit from.
  3. Gaining support and encouragement to start using services that can help you.

How can it help?

We can link you with many services and community support groups.
