Social Prescribing

Social prescribing is a way of linking patients with sources of support within the community. It provides health professionals with a non–medical referral option that can operate alongside existing treatments to improve health and wellbeing.

Taster activities include:

  • Health walks
  • Seated zumba
  • Art classes
  • Dance
  • Befrienders scheme
  • Computer classes
  • Movement classes
  • Men's group
  • Music
If you would like to join a similar group, ask at the practice about the social prescribing scheme.

Treatment of Common Illnesses

Many everyday illnesses can be managed at home without the need to consult a doctor. We have some NHS booklets available at both surgeries which give guidelines on how to deal with many less serious problems. However if you are worried please telephone the surgery for advice.
