Welcome to Podcast on Prescription, brought to you by Dr Radha Modgil and the National Academy for Social Prescribing


We want people to be able to live their best possible life. Social prescribing helps people to do this. When you hear the word ‘prescription’ you might automatically think of tablets, pills and medication, but a ‘social prescription’ is different.


So, what is social prescribing? Well, simply put, social prescribing is a way for health professionals, such as social prescribing link workers based in a GP practice, to connect people to activities in the community for practical and emotional support. It helps people gain choice and control over their wellbeing, to manage their needs and in a way that suits them.


It can especially help people who have long-term conditions, need support with their mental health, are lonely or isolated or have complex social needs. Social Prescribing is now being offered across the NHS in England and there is a growing movement both here and internationally embracing the benefits.


And in this podcast, we are going to explore more about the power of all of these activities: that 'social prescription’ that helps people through.
