Online event – Social Prescribing

Join us for our next free online event on Friday 11 August, 1pm-2pm with Lianne Watkins and Christine Mitchell, Living Well Coordinators for West Northumberland Primary Care Network, who will talk about social prescribing.

Many things affect our health and wellbeing, not just medical issues. In some cases your doctor, or other healthcare professional, may refer you to the social prescribing service. Social prescribers can direct you to services that can help with things such as counselling services, arts and creative activities, employment and training and financial advice.

In the session Lianne and Christine will share information on the referral criteria and process and how the service works.

This session is suitable for anyone who is registered with one of the 12 GP practices within the West Northumberland PCN.

There will also be a chance to ask questions.
