Social prescribing refers to providing a service for people to go to if their problems are not necessarily medical related.
People often present at the GP when their problem really is loneliness, or depression caused by financial stress, etc. So with social prescribing, a GP will refer the patient to a link worker (social prescriber) who spends time with the patient and puts them in touch with services in the voluntary sector that can support them through their non-medical issues, e.g. housing support, physical fitness, social clubs and organisations, legal services etc.
It is not a new service, but is one researchers are finding shows positive impact in that demands on primary care fall when a patient’s overriding issues are addressed.
Social prescribing is not a “treatment” like CBT, it is finding a social solution for the challenges that people face in life so they are less reliant on health professionals and integrates/links them into services which help address their needs.
