We can work with you to identify local activities, support and groups that can improve your quality of life. You could be referred to a range of services in your community, such as sports groups, cookery classes, volunteering, benefits advice, or befriending.
By focusing on your strengths and on what really matters to you, we’ll work with you to take more control of your own health and wellbeing.
Here’s more information about our social prescribing services: Doncaster Social Prescribing and My Best Life Barnsley.
Doncaster Social Prescribing
Doncaster Social Prescribing is a project that gives healthcare professionals in Doncaster the option to prescribe non-medical support to patients.
A social prescribing advisor will visit the patient in their home, and they will work together to identify the support and opportunities they’d like to access. They will then be put in touch with local services and community groups that can help them to meet their goals.
We’re working with NHS Doncaster Clinical Commissioning Group and Doncaster Council to make sure that all local people have access to the information, opportunities and support they need to feel settled and happy.
If you or anyone you know might benefit from the support offered by Doncaster Social Prescribing please contact your GP, pharmacist or community nurse and ask to be referred to the service.
My Best Life Barnsley
Following the success of Doncaster Social Prescribing, we were really pleased to launch our second social prescribing service in 2017. Find out more about My Best Life Barnsley Primary and Secondary Care by taking a look at the factsheets below.
“Social prescribing empowers people to tackle their own health problems, which can’t be solved through pills, tablets and other medical interventions. This is an alternative that is also a way we can reduce the strain on busy GPs.”Dr Nick Tupper
Chair of NHS Doncaster Clinical Commissioning Group
