Social prescribing is the term used for how the Stennack Surgery refer patients to ‘services’ in their community instead of offering only medicalised solutions. The first point of referral at the Stennack Surgery is normally through Ruth Todd our Community Co-ordinator or Manda Brookman our Community Maker.
They can talk to patients about the things that matter to them. Together they can co-produce a social prescription that will help to improve their health and wellbeing. However patients can get involved by just coming down to anyone of the activities on offer from the Community Hub.
The community activities range from yoga classes to pop-up cafes, from walking clubs to gardening, alongside a host of many other groups and activities.
Social Prescribing is really taking off here at the Stennack Surgery and is available to absolutely everyone. Research shows that patients who are lonely or isolated; patients with mild mental health issues who may be anxious or depressed; and, those who struggle to engage effectively with services often find huge benefits from Social Prescribing.
It is also relevant to people with wider social issues such as poverty, debt, housing, relationship problems, all of which impact on their health and wellbeing. Very often these patients may have frequent repeat visits to their GP or to their local emergency department – effectively trapping them in a ‘revolving door’ of services.
The Stennack Surgery Community Hub formed in 2018 from the Waiting Room with help from Volunteer Cornwall and Active Plus and is now home to a wide variety of services and community activities throughout the week. In 2019 the Community Hub will undergo a major refurbishment with financial backing from the lovely Friends of Stennack Surgery (FOSS) group. This refurbishment is fully supported by our Patient Participation Group who recently conducted a patient survey to help aid the redesign, the results of which are available below:
