- *Social Prescribing
- *NHS Health Checks Age 40-74
Social prescribing allows GPs and nurses to refer patients with social, emotional or practical needs to a range of local services which are often provided by the voluntary and community sector.
Who is eligible to access the social prescribing programme?
Any person over 18 who has one or more long-term condition OR a carer of a patient who meets this criteria.
People must also identify with one or more of the following indicators:
Socially isolated, meaning they have contact with friends, family or neighbours less than once a week
Frequent users of primary care services or accident and emergency
Struggling to manage significant life change
Struggling to manage their health conditions
Eligible people who are referred by their GP or nurse will be assessed by a social prescribing coordinator, who will then refer the patient to voluntary organisations which have programmes that can help with their particular needs.
*NHS Health Checks Age 40-74
We are happy to offer a NHS Health Check for patients aged 40-74 without a pre-existing vascular condition (such as heart disease or history of stroke or circulation problems). This is aimed at identification and early intervention of factors that cause these medical conditions. If you are interested, please make an appointment with our Healthcare Assistant.
