Living Well Coordination Service

Online event – Social Prescribing

At this month’s free online public event we will hear from Tania Thomas, Team Leader for the Living Well Service at West Northumberland Primary Care Network, who will provide a brief overview of the Social Prescribing Service.

The Covid-19 pandemic has increased isolation for many people, amplifying concerns about the impact on societal mental health. The role of social prescribing in linking people to non-clinical community services as we move out of the pandemic will become more important than ever.

Join us on Friday 11 February, 1pm-2pm to find out more about social prescribing, what it is, how it works and how it can benefit our health and wellbeing.

We will also hear how you can access the service if you live in West Northumberland, what you can expect from the support on offer and find out about referral processes elsewhere in the county.

The session is suitable for people who live or work in Northumberland and are interested in improving their health and wellbeing. There will also be a chance to ask questions.
