Lots of chatter regarding #SocialPrescribing over the past few days - some great comments & ideas warranting sensible debate, some inevitable & understandable misunderstanding, & some attempts to undermine the great work being delivered by people & communities across the county
#SocialPrescribing enables all local agencies to refer people to a ‘link worker’ to connect them into community-based support, building on what matters to the person as identified through shared decision making/personalised care and support planning
It is not ‘signposting’, it is not a case of ‘doctor knows best’, it is not ‘over-medicalising community’, it is not a top down initiative - it builds on the assets people have in their own lives and helps them develop non biomedical solutions to improve their health & wellbeing
