Social Prescribing

How Social Prescribing Helps

Do you feel isolated, low, lost, or are you new to the area?

If so, would you like to know more about the options and opportunities available to you in your local area? If yes, social prescribing is here for you! They are here to support you to address all of those feelings by signposting you to make connections in your local area, which are recognised to benefit your overall health and well being.

Our social prescribers

Our social prescriber at The Lade Medical Practice is Samaira. She can be contacted on 01738 475671 or 01738 476811, or you can ask at reception for when Samaira will next be in the Practice.

Here are some examples of what your social prescriber can assist with:

  • social isolation and loneliness
  • emotional wellbeing
  • healthy lifestyle choices
  • getting out and about
  • life changing events
  • long term health conditions
  • loss of confidence or purpose
  • poor health linked to housing
  • accessing work, training or volunteering
