National Social Prescribers Day
Today is National Social Prescribers Day and so we are celebrating the work of our social prescribers
Theirs is a relatively new role in healthcare, helping with a range of non-clinical issues, from isolation, loneliness, weight-loss, fitness or finance and housing problems. They work in conjunction with clinical staff and empower clients by providing longer-term support and strategies.
Carole Gill and Mark Smith are our social prescribers and you can read more about them here:
Katie Clark, Primary Care Network Operations Manager, who oversees the social prescribing teams, said:
‘It is great to recognise the work of our social carers with a National Awareness Day. They all work really hard and bring a huge amount of skills and professionalism to the role.’
