Free online social prescribing event
Join us for our next free online lunchtime event on Friday 11 August, between 1.00pm and 2.00pm. We’ll be joined by Lianne Watkins and Christine Mitchell, Living Well Coordinators for the West Northumberland Primary Care Network, who will talk about social prescribing and how it can help you and your family.
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, social activities, employment and training and financial advice.
In the session Lianne and Christine will talk about how the service works, who can be referred and how you can be referred to this free service.
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.
