Social prescribing is about connecting people with social, emotional or practical needs to local sources of help and support. Social prescribing empowers people to take control of their own health and wellbeing.
Hello, my name is Kelly and I am the Social Prescribing Lead at Milton Abbas Surgery. Some of you may already recognise me as I am also one of the Receptionists.
If you are struggling with your mental health, financial worries, bereavement or any other concerns please do not feel that you are on your own – we are here to help. We all need support at one time or another, so do not be afraid to ask.
If you would like a listening ear about anything that is worrying you or would like help finding the support you need, please contact the surgery and they can put you in touch with me. You can also send an email to [email protected] for my attention. I look forward to chatting with you.
