With an estimated 1 in 5 GP visits not needing a clinical intervention Social Prescribing is available across our PCN’s. 

The service is delivered in partnership with Voluntary Centre Services and Lincolnshire Community Voluntary Service.

The county now hosts a team of 31 Link Workers employed to offer 1:1 support and advice to individuals that helps them to connect with their community, reducing social isolation and improving their health and wellbeing.

Over the Covid-19 lockdown period, Social Prescribing Link Workers carried out almost 11,000 support activities ranging from telephone calls, liaison with services, online MDTs, on ward signposting to services as the NHS GoodSam befriending service.
