Live Well Wakefield is a social prescribing service that links adult 18+, registered with a Wakefield GP – like ours, with non-medical support in the local area.
During the current COVID-19 outbreak they’re still accepting social prescribing referrals and are also encouraging referrals from our vulnerable patients who are self-isolating and have no support to access shopping, medication delivery and/or befriending support. They can also support you with information on up to date safety advice and help you to access additional support services as appropriate during this time.
Information on their standard service and what ‘Social Prescribing’ is, can be found on their website: https://www.livewellwakefield.nhs.uk/ (click on the topic boxes)
At present Live Well Wakefield is unable to offer face to face appointments but all assessments will be completed over phone/email or with a family member if appropriate to ensure they can continue to support all.
