Social Prescribing

Wellspring Settlement provides a free and confidential social prescribing service to patients registered at Montpelier Health Centre.

Speak to your GP or healthcare advisor, or complete a referral form online and they will provide guidance and direction to access services and activities in your area.

Social prescribing link workers connect people to community-based support, including activities and services that meet practical, social, and emotional needs that affect their health and wellbeing. This includes connecting people to statutory services for example housing, financial and welfare advice.

Social prescribing works particularly well for people with low level mental health needs, who feel lonely or isolated, with long term conditions and complex social needs.

Social prescribing link workers work collaboratively across the health and care system, targeting populations with greatest need and risk of health inequalities. They collaborate with partners to identify gaps in provision and support community offers to be accessible and sustainable.
