Today is International Social Prescribing Day.

Social prescribers are employed in a healthcare setting to help patients understand areas of their life that impacts on their health and signpost them to professionals that can support them. They can guide patients with issues such as stress and anxiety, fitness, loneliness and other things that can affect wellbeing.

We have a team of social prescribers at South Bar House who can help our patients, who may need support, but do not need to see a doctor or nurse.
