Social prescribing starts with a conversation. It may be a conversation with a GP or with someone else from the practice team.
Link Workers support people to unpick issues they may be facing and give them time to focus on what matters to them. They connect people to community groups and activities that provide practical and emotional support, enabling the people to take greater control of their health and wellbeing. Working as part of a multidisciplinary team link workers collaborate with local partners to support community groups to be accessible and sustainable as well as helping people to start new groups.
