I am a Social Prescribing Link Worker working for the North Cotswolds Primary Care Network which includes Campden Surgery. I and my colleagues in the Community Wellbeing Service are here to support people in the Cotswolds who are struggling with loneliness, long term health conditions, social isolation or issues arising from a significant life event or a new diagnosis. As Social Prescribers, we talk to people, giving them the time they need to talk about what is important to them. Following this, we look for organisations, local projects, community groups or support groups to link them into to improve their wellbeing, strengthen their connection to their local community or to provide support to help them manage their health issues.
