Social Prescriber

The Hollies Medical Practice is patient care focused. This is why we are introducing Social Prescribing – an alternative to prescribing medication. A way of linking patients in primary care with sources of support within the community to help improve their health

Please contact the surgery to be put in touch with our social prescriber.

What is social prescribing?

Social prescribing is a service provided to GPs that links patients to community groups and social support.

Social prescribing works for a wide range of people, including people:

  • with one or more long-term conditions
  • who need support with their mental health
  • who are lonely or isolated
  • who have complex social needs which affect their wellbeing
