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.

Your GP surgery can refer you to Going Local, where one of our Community Referrers will 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. Together, a plan will be formed - using local resources that you may not be aware of or hadn't thought of.

Get extra support to feel well - social prescribing here in your surgery

You might be worried about your housing and financial situation, perhaps you're keen to find out about local courses or discover a new interest. Whatever you are looking to change in your life, we can use our vast community knowledge to help you focus on what matters most.

Referrals are via your GP and we are currently working with the following surgeries:


  • Manor Practice, Southwick
  • Harbour View, Shoreham
  • Northbourne, Shoreham
  • Ball Tree Surgery, Sompting
  • The Orchard Surgery, Lancing
