Spring Social Prescribing Newsletter
SPRING Social Prescribing is a way to link medical care to (typically) non-clinical, locally delivered support services. It enables medical professionals to refer their patients to a range of activities and services, recognising a social model of health in which well-being is determined by a variety of factors. SPRING empowers patients and communities, supports greater independence, reduces reliance on primary healthcare, and ultimately delivers better outcomes for people and society. Here is a link to this months newsletter produced by Lorna O’Neill Social Prescriber.

This is a really useful booklet published by BCRC Community Navigator and a range of supporting organisations. The community navigator is a vital link between older people, carers and supporting organisations.
