Department of Health funded social prescribing service launched

14 Dec 2018

We’re delighted to see the launch of our newest social prescribing project, Connect Well West Kent – a Department of Health funded service.

 

This new service will be delivered by our existing partners, Involve Kent, and will see a team of social prescribers based in 5 GPs surgeries across West Kent to support people with their health and wellbeing. Using our social prescribing framework they will refer people into local support, monitor their wellbeing and track health outcomes.

Our team spent the day with the new Involve Co-ordinators and trained them on making referrals into local community activities and services and supporting isolated, lonely patients to improve their health and wellbeing.
