The REAL Social Prescribing pilot is a one-year collaborative project between Arun and Chichester Citizens Advice, Arun Primary Care Group Ltd and the Local Community Networks (LCNs). Arun and Chichester Citizens Advice as a partner of the LCNs will be the employing agency.
The project will provide a new referral system for GPs and other Healthcare professionals to refer patients with social, emotional or practical needs to a range of non-clinical services. This is based on the belief that the best way to tackle around 70-80% of health issues lies in non-medical solutions. The Community Referrers will provide individual support for patients referred into the service to access a range of community based non-clinical services. Using behaviour change techniques, they will work with individuals to set goals and priorities which will lead to improvements in their health and wellbeing.
