Acting as a guide through the health and social care system, Social Prescribers connect people with appropriate community resources and support services, with the aim of enabling people to increase their independence and ability to self-manage, thereby reducing demand on health services. People being discharged from or who have recently left hospital will receive 12 weeks of support to meet identified and additional needs.
