Social Prescribing | Wolverhampton Voluntary Sector Council

Wolverhampton Voluntary Sector Council and Wolverhampton Clinical Commissioning Group have launched an exciting pilot project.

WV Social Prescribing will lead to more people improving their health and well-being by benefitting from the support of the Voluntary and Community Sector in the City.

Primary care staff including GPs will refer patients to a range of support that is available across the City in order to help those patients look at other ways of achieving improved health and well- being.

This project is part of the transformation of health and social care provision vital to enabling a pro-active and preventative approach to health and well-being. The project will work to address Professor Michael Marmot’s Commission on the social determinants of health such as stress, social inclusion, work, unemployment, social support, addiction, food and transport.
