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.

NHS 111 Service

If you require medical attention or advice between 18:30 and 08:00 on weekdays and from 18:30 Friday until 08:00 Monday on weekends, please call NHS 111, who will be able to arrange local medical attention if required.

 

NHS 111 is also available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.

 

NHS 111 is a service that's been introduced to make it easier for you to access local NHS healthcare services in England.  You should use the NHS 111 service if:

 
  • You need medical help or advice fast but it's not a 999 emergency
  • You think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service
  • You don't know who to call or don't have a GP to call
  • You need health information or reassurance about what to do next

For less urgent needs, please contact your local GP or pharmacist in the usual way.

If a health professional has given you a specific phone number to call when you are concerned about your condition, continue to use that number.

 

For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, continue to call 999.
