Focus on your wellbeing this Social Prescribing Day


Focus on your wellbeing this Social Prescribing Day

Today is Social Prescribing Day, a time for us all to reflect on our health and wellbeing and the local services available to support us to feel healthier and happier.

Social prescribing enables GPs and other healthcare professionals to refer patients to a range of services which offer non-medical, personalised health and wellbeing help and advice.

In the Tandridge district, residents needing guidance or support with any non-medical aspect of their health and wellbeing can get free expert advice through Wellbeing Prescription, our social prescribing team.

The team is available to support East Surrey residents aged 18 and over on a range of issues, including:

  • Support with emotional wellbeing, such as low mood, worry and loneliness.
  • Support with losing weight and improving your diet.
  • Guidance on how to get more active.
  • Support to remain independent, safe and well at home.
  • Support with financial concerns, housing and employment.
  • And much more!

It’s easier than ever for residents to access the team’s services. As well being referred through traditional routes like GPs and healthcare professionals, residents can contact the team directly or refer a friend or loved one, if they agree.

Due to the current restrictions, most appointments with Wellbeing Prescription are taking place over the phone and through video calls at the moment, until it’s safe to meet face to face in GP surgeries, community venues or in a resident’s home.
