Social Prescribing

Our social prescriber, John Keen-Tomlinson, work every Tuesday from 9:00 to 14:00.

  • Cleanliness / Hygiene
  • Coping with Chronic Illness
  • Disability Support
  • Employment Advice

  • Physical Inactivity
  • Post-cancer Support
  • Post-stroke Support
  • Prevention of Chronic Disease
  • Property / Housing Support
