Social Prescribing

What is Social Prescribing?

Our Social Prescribing Team


Luke Stewart

"I am the lead for the Social Prescribing and Health and Wellbeing Coach services in the PCN. I also work as a Social Prescriber. In my leadership role, I manage the team of Social Prescribers and Health and Wellbeing Coaches, who support patients to improve their wellbeing. I am constantly working with the team on ways that these new roles in primary care can develop and provide excellent care for our patients."


Kim Trickey

"My role is to bridge the social care gap between our GPs and local services to help connect people with community organisations outside of the GP practice. This helps them feel more engaged and empowered to support themselves with their long-term illnesses and the difficulties they are facing "

What our patients think about Social Prescribing


"The service offered lots of information and my prescriber was very understanding of my problems. She pointed me in the right direction and I am losing weight and feeling more positive than I have done in many years. Also being referred to the Why Weight service has helped a lot. So glad this service has been made available to me."

"Very happy with the service. Made me aware of other services offered by my surgery. The follow up call to ensure all was well was much appreciated."

"Kim was so helpful all the time, she made me so happy with everything she did for me, she made sure i receive all the benefits she refered me to before she discharged me. I can't recommend her enough. Thank you so ever much!"

"Didn’t feel time pressured, listened, advised, discussed, friendly, easy to talk to"
