Warwickshire East PCN wants to work with local communities to work towards a healthier lifestyle and to empower people to make the right choices for their health care needs. This service is designed in a way to offer patients clinical and non-clinical services to support health and wellbeing in our community.
We will work to offer people a service that can offer benefits such as;
The basic principal of our service is to recognise that primarily a range of social, economic and environmental factors determines people’s health. Social Link Working seeks to support people to address their own needs and aims to support individuals to take greater control of their own health. Social Prescribing can also help to connect people to community groups and statutory services for practical and emotional support.
How can Social Link Workers help patients?
The aim of this service is to help support patients and address their social needs. Social Link Workers support in a non-medical way of working and can help with a variety of issues. This is an example of just some of the areas of work we deal with.
Ludmila Enticott is the newly appointed Health and Wellbeing Coach (HWC) for East PCN. Ludmila has a background in Nutritional Therapy (BSc Hons University of West London) and clinical-PNI (post-grad Psychoneuroimmunology by Natura Foundation).
Ludmila will work with patients to help them identify how to make lifestyle changes to impact positively on their health conditions. Patients will be encouraged to talk about:
Patients will learn, for example, how their dietary choices impact their symptoms and how to modify their habits for their own benefit. Patients will not only learn how to do this for themselves but will have the support to implement changes gradually. This gradual process of change will be achieved through several coaching sessions lasting no less than one hour each. Patients will be given time to figure out their priorities, a plan to implement changes necessary to achieve their own goals and guided support to ensure they succeed in the process.
Hello, my name is Amanda and I am Lead Social Prescriber for the East Primary Care Network. I have over twenty years’ experience working in adult social care in various roles and settings.
What is Social Prescribing?
Social Prescribing starts with a conversation, it is a way of supporting you to address any non-medical challenges that are having an effect on your health and wellbeing.
Your Social Prescriber will find out what is important to you and support you in overcoming these challenges, they may link you in with other services, or groups to support with the issues you have identified. Many things affect our health and wellbeing. GPs tell us that a lot of people visit them feeling isolated or lonely. Or they might be stressed out by work, money and housing problems. Sometimes it’s the stress of managing different long-term conditions.
If you are unsure if Social Prescribing is right for you, please just ask and one of the team at the surgery and we will be happy to have an informal chat with you.
