Island City Medical Practice, Hampshire

"As a Social Prescriber, I work alongside clinical teams to help people better manage their health and wellbeing. 

"The Check In and Chat service is a great tool health and care professionals can utilise to support people who are lonely, isolated or unable to get out and about and socialise. Through the service, they are able to build social connections and rapport with friendly and helpful volunteers. Many love the service, and the calls are something they look forward to.” 

"I would recommend Check In and Chat to health and care colleagues. Making a referral is quick and easy, and the calls can positively impact a person’s wellbeing."

Sarah Croft, Social Prescriber for Island City Practice
