Many congratulations to our Social Prescribing team on being one of three projects to be shortlisted for an ALLIANCE Self Management Award in the category ‘Self Management Project of the Year’. The aim of these awards is to highlight good practice and promote a wide range of self management work. The Awards are being held at the Scottish Parliament on the 1st October and will be hosted by Aileen McLeod MSP.
Our Social Prescribing Project sees our three practitioners working with GPs at practices in Grangemouth, Denny and Stenhousemuir. Jane, Selena and Lorna work one-to-one with patients who are experiencing difficulties with the mental wellbeing, helping patients to bring about change, start the recovery process and access community resources. This is a fantastic project that has received very positive feedback from users of the service and referrers alike.
Good luck to all of the team on the night – we’ll be rooting for you!
