Our Social Prescribing team has been successfully working alongside GPs in Merton since 2017.
What Is Social Prescribing
Social Prescribing is a way of linking patients in primary care with sources of support within the community. It provides GPs with a non-medical referral option that can operate alongside existing treatments to improve health and wellbeing
Social Prescribing Coordinators can help link you to local groups and activities, help you make positive lifestyle changes, learn new skills and refer you into community health services and social care if necessary. Social Prescribing Coordinators can also provide you with information on topics such as employment, training, benefits, housing and legal advice.
