About the Event

An increasing population in the UK combined with the decline in the number of GPs has – in some cases - resulted in overwhelmed GP surgeries, relied on for more than just healthcare. A report by Citizens Advice suggested that almost a fifth of  GP appointment time is used for primarily social rather than medical problems.

Social prescribing helps reduce pressure on health and care services by supporting access to community based non-clinical services. However, many of these patients need to see a GP first, which uses up a clinical appointment for a non-medical need and requires two appointments for the patient, not one.

This webinar will explore different approaches to improve access to additional roles through care navigation and online consultations. We will explore how these principles could be adapted for future use in general practice to improve access to additional roles, such as social prescribing link workers. This builds on existing work of a first contact practitioner (FCP) case study.

Join NASP’s Thriving Communities regional Lead for Yorkshire & Humber, David Cowan, and a range of speakers from general practice in northeast and Yorkshire and from around the UK.

Speakers include:

Tracy Burton, Practice Manager from Newsome Surgery Huddersfield and Business Consultant

Matt Taylor, Managing Director, Sano Physiotherapy Ltd

Rebecca Scott, Social Prescribing Link Worker, York Rd PCN

Robyne Orton, Senior Social Prescribing Link Worker, Hartlepool PCN
