Care Hub

Care Hub has been developed by a consortium of partners including GPs from West Cheshire CCG, Brightlife, Brio Leisure and other stakeholders to further links to, and knowledge of Social Prescribing facilities available to our patients.  

What is social prescribing?

Social prescribing, sometimes referred to as community referral, is a means of enabling GPs, nurses and other primary care professionals to refer people to a range of local, non-clinical services.

Recognising that people’s health is determined primarily by a range of social, economic and environmental factors, social prescribing seeks to address people’s needs in a holistic way. It also aims to support individuals to take greater control of their own health.

Social prescribing schemes can involve a variety of activities which are typically provided by voluntary and community sector organisations. Examples include volunteering, arts activities, group learning, gardening, befriending, legal advice, support groups, specific health issues organisations, cookery, healthy eating advice and a range of sports.

Social prescribing is designed to support people with a wide range of social, emotional or practical needs, and many schemes are focussed on improving mental health and physical well-being.  Those who could benefit from social prescribing schemes include people with mild or long-term mental or physical health problems, vulnerable groups, people who are socially isolated, and those who frequently attend either primary or secondary health care.

Data Protection

Please find below our Practice Policies relating to the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and the 2018 Data Protection Act which protects the personal data of our patients and staff.

What is personal data?


The key terms
GDPR and other data protection laws rely on the term 'personal data' to discuss information about individuals. There are two key types of personal data in the UK and they cover different categories of information.
What is personal data?
Personal data can be anything that allows a living person to be directly or indirectly identified. This may be a name, an address, or even an IP address. It includes automated personal data and can also encompass pseudonymised data if a person can be identified from it.
So, what's sensitive personal data?
GDPR calls sensitive personal data as being in 'special categories' of information. These include trade union membership, religious beliefs, political opinions, racial information, and sexual orientation.
