Social Prescribing

At its most basic, a social prescription offers the kind of help that doesn’t come in a tube or a bottle.

The idea behind social prescribing is to help you to have more control over your own health and find ways to improve how you feel in a way that suits you.

Studies show that patients with social prescriptions get better and feel better faster than those treated with medicine alone. And because it works, it’s happening more and more.
