Going Local - a prescription of a different kind

“Going Local has given me a new lease of life - I felt isolated and didn't know where to turn. Now that my worries are being dealt with, I feel more confident and ready to move forward with my life”

Going Local - two people talking

Life can be challenging sometimes - and when there's more than one hurdle, it can be difficult to know where to start. Social Prescribing gives you a safe place to talk at length about any worries that might be affecting your health and wellbeing.

To access Going Local you can be referred by your GP or other professional; a family member or by completing this form:

If you need support completing this form, please call: 01903 221222

One of our Social Prescribers will then arrange a session to help unpick what is most pressing and important to you. We will listen carefully as you tell us your worries and how this is impacting your health and wellbeing. Our Social Prescribers are highly skilled and will help you access the advice you need to help solve the problem.
