Self Referrals

Social Prescribing (Health and Wellbeing)

At times we feel ‘unwell’, ‘out of sorts’ or ‘below par’ and a medical prescription is not the answer. What we are lacking is company, interests, or a change of scene to make us feel connected and motivated. Or perhaps we need counselling or more exercise to keep our bodies strong and our minds stimulated.

Physiotherapy self referral is a system which allows you to refer yourself to a physiotherapist without having to see a doctor first.

How does it work?

The Health and Wellbeing Partners can help connect you to local services and activities to improve your physical and mental wellbeing:

  • Counselling; Arts and crafts; Advice and guidance; Addition support; Physical activity; Culture; Eating Well; Meeting People
