Feeling overwhelmed? Social Prescribers here to help!

Feeling overwhelmed?

A social prescriber might be just what you need...

When you’re feeling overwhelmed and don’t know where to get help, you may think you need to see your doctor when in fact the best person to help you could be a social prescribing link worker. 

A range of health and wellbeing professionals are being added to general practice teams as part of a programme to expand the NHS workforce—some work at your doctor’s surgery and others work in the wider community to help you get the most appropriate care when you need it. 

One of the newer roles in the GP team is the social prescribing link worker (SPLW), sometimes referred to as a social prescriber—they are available to everyone.
