Social Prescribing

Onside's delighted to be working in partnership with Primary Care Networks across Worcestershire providing their Social Prescribing Services

What is Social Prescribing?

Social Prescribing aims to support individuals to take greater control of their health and feel more empowered to look after themselves.

Social Prescribers are based within GP practices. GPs and other health and social care professionals can refer in to the service.

Social Prescribing links patients with non-medical support to address people’s needs in a holistic way. It recognises that people’s health is determined primarily by a range of social, economic and environmental factors and aims to support people to address and deal with issues relating to these factors.

Specialist Social Prescribing Services

In collaboration with Primary Care Networks across Worcestershire, we are developed a number of Specialist Social Prescribing roles.

  • Wellbeing Coaches support patients facing low level mental ill health, with one to one coaching sessions or group interventions that enable them to improve their mental wellbeing, coping skills and confidence. Using an individually tailored approach drawing on a range of proven tools. Wellbeing Coaching will build the awareness and self-knowledge that will enable people to take greater control of their own mental health and wellbeing.
