Medicine that doesn't come in a tube or bottle!

Community Connect

Medicine that doesn't come in a tube or bottle!

Community Connect, a new Social Prescribing service which helps with people’s health and well-being, is now available at the Nuffield surgery. It links people with community activities to improve mental and physical wellbeing and reduce loneliness.

Social Prescribing is a way in which people living with long term conditions can get access to a variety of support services they need. Issues like help with getting a job, housing, debt management and social contact. Help with these things is often available through local authorities, charities and local community organisations.

Social Prescribing means that the individual can build their support links by working with a Community Navigator who does know, or who has expertise in finding out, what is available.  Following a referral from the GP, together with the Community Navigator, the individual can discuss their problems and identify the support that they need to manage their own health more effectively and meet their own personal goals.
