Social Prescriber

We are delighted to announce that our Social Prescriber, Sarah Hannigan, is now up and running.

Social Prescribing can support you with managing your stress, loneliness, finding social groups, learning new skills, physical activity or getting information on employment, benefits, housing and legal advice.

Referrals to see her are primarily made via our GPs but if you feel you would benefit from seeing her, please speak to reception who will be able to organise an appointment for you.

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.

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