SOCIAL PRESCRIBING

What is social prescribing?
It is a way of linking a patient to appropriate non-clinical support in their
community. It is recognised that many of life’s problems can make us
feel unwell. Improving lifestyle or taking control of a practical problem
can be very challenging and people often feel daunted at the prospect of
change and don’t always know where to start. Social prescribing can help empower, and give people the confidence and support necessary to make and sustain a change.

HEALTH AND WELLBEING COACHING

Health and wellbeing coaches (HWBCs) predominantly use health coaching & motivational skills to support people with lower levels of patient activation to develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to become active participants in their own healthcare so that they can reach their self-identified health and wellbeing goals.

This personalised support is delivered through multiple sessions, increasing patient activation levels and empowering them to identify and implement lifestyle changes and self-management approaches to managing existing conditions or prevention of long-term physical and emotional health conditions.

The HWBC will work in partnership with multidisciplinary teams including the GP’s, Social Prescribing and Care Coordinators Teams to holistically support patients’ wider health & wellbeing.

CARE COORDINATING

A Care Coordinator is someone who will proactively identify and work with a cohort of patients with changing care needs, ensuring that their personalised care requirements are understood and communicated with other members of the PCN.

They will help patients to develop a person-centred care and support plan, which will focus on what matters to and for the individual.

FIRST CONTACT PHYSIO

  • giving expert advice on how best to manage their conditions
  • referring them onto specialist services if necessary.
