Ways to Wellbeing, Social Prescribing Programme
Just under a fifth of people who go to their GP practice will be there because of a social issue, which is either causing or exacerbating a health issue. The Ways to Wellbeing programme was set up to address this through providing non-medical prescriptions, used to tackle the social problems affecting patients. Delivered across Halton, Knowsley and St Helens, the programme links people to non-medical sources of support within their communities.
We believe it is important to measure our social impact as it demonstrates the value our business creates within communities in which we operate in. We are also keen to showcase how our business provides financial value to the economy and generates cost savings in public expenditure.
