Social prescribing, also sometimes known as community referral, is a growing movement connecting people with a wide range of non-clinical programmes, services and support in their local community.

This service is offered by SOFEA’s Link Workers who work with the Didcot PCN.

Social Prescribing offers huge advantages to both patients and health professionals by freeing up more time for them to spend with other patients whose problems are more specifically medical, whilst the Social Prescriber Link Worker takes the time to get to know and understand the needs of their patient with a view to offering the support they need.

Social prescribing improves outcomes for people by giving more choice and control over their lives and an improved sense of belonging.
