Social Prescribing

Social Prescribing is an initiative which aims to enable GPs, Nurses, Adult Social Care and other Primary Care professionals to refer people to a range of local, non-clinical services. The aim is to reduce the demand on front line health and care services by finding community-based alternatives to medical appointments and interventions.

This service is led by Community Action Norfolk and involves a range of local providers who aim to address people’s needs in a holistic way – supporting individuals to take greater control of their health. We work across the Breckland area of Norfolk, specifically with three GP surgeries in and around the Thetford area.
