Lead Social Prescriber
Social prescribing is a relatively new concept that places patients at the centre of their own non-clinical care, highlighting the ethos of “what matters to me,” The aim is to help people discover ways to feel better and improve how they feel in a manner that supports their own decision making.
Social Prescribing offers help and support that doesn’t come in a tube or a bottle but instead through engagement with local and community based groups and resources to aid support, encourage participation and help reduce the impact of loneliness and isolation.
Helen has worked for many years in coaching, counselling and educational roles. Helen is available to listen to 'What matters to you' and to help support you to improve health and wellbeing. This may involve connecting you to people and community groups or services for practical support.
