Social prescribing link workers play a key role in delivering social prescribing by giving people time, focusing on ‘what matters to me’ and taking a holistic approach to people’s health and wellbeing in order to connect them to appropriate community groups and services.
Social prescribing link workers play a pivotal role by developing trusting relationships and providing personalised support. As a result, their work:
- strengthens community resilience
- reduces health inequalities by addressing the wider determinants of health, such as debt, poor housing and physical inactivity
- increases people’s active involvement with their local communities
Social prescribing link workers also support existing community groups to be accessible and sustainable, and help people to start new groups, working collaboratively with all local partners.
We have a Practice Physiotherapist available to deliver face-to-face physiotherapy as well as telephone consultations for advice and treatment.
Influenza or 'Flu'
From the end of September each year the influenza vaccination will be available for patients over the age of 65, healthcare workers and adults and children with any of the following conditions:-
- heart disease
- kidney disease
- chronic chest conditions including asthma
- conditions causing lowered immunity
Tetanus, Diptheria and Polio Immunisations
It is now considered for most circumstances that a total of five doses of the vaccine at appropriate intervals give satisfactory long-term protection. Therefore boosters are not required every ten years. If in doubt please speak to the practice nurse.
Pneumococcal disease is the term used to describe a range of illnesses such as pneumonia, septicaemia (blood poisoning) and meningitis. The pneumococcal vaccination is available for patients over the age of 65 and adults and children with any of the following conditions:-
- heart disease
- lung disease
- those with no spleen or lowered immunity
Please check with the practice nurse that your child is up to date with the current vaccination schedule
