Who Provides the Social Prescribing Service? 

Social Prescribing across The Valleys Primary Care Network is provided by Community Plus, in partnership with Kirklees Council. 

What is Social Prescribing? 

Social Prescribing Link Workers will support patients to access local, non-medical activities, opportunities and support that can improve health and help patients 'live life to the full'. These activities, opportunities and support are typically provided by locally based, voluntary and community sector organisations. 

Whether you need help at home, want to discover more about local activities, support services, or even become a volunteer, the Social Prescribing Service can help you. The aim of the Social Prescriber is to support you to live as independently as possible. 

Patients are offered an initial appointment at the surgery with your Social Prescribing Link Worker, who will discuss your needs with you and devise an action plan together. You may only require one session, however you can be offered up to 12 sessions, most of which will take place away from the surgery. 

Am I Eligible?

Social Prescribing Link Workers will work with a variety of patients including:

  • Those with one or more long term conditions
  • Those who need mental health support
  • Those who are or at risk of becoming lonely or isolated
  • Those with complex social needs which affect their well-being

How Do I Access the Social Prescribing Service?

If you would like to access the Social Prescribing Service you can do so by speaking to your surgery staff who will arrange an appoint for you with the Social Prescribing Link Worker.
