 project.

Patients visiting Tuckswood surgery could find themselves being prescribed befriending or volunteering opportunities under a new pilot.  Tuckswood Surgery is testing how 'social prescriptions' can help patients who visit their GP but may not need medical help.  The Surgery said that a number of patients come through their doors with issues such as loneliness, housing problems, or employment issues.  We are partnering with the Tuckswood Surgery, Age U.K., and Community Action Norfolk to pilot this scheme.  Duane Elkins our Community Outreach Manager attends the surgery on Friday afternoons to talk with patients helping to sign post them to agencies and charities that can take the time they need to support them and help find solutions.  This project is in its infancy but the potential to impact the community for good is huge.
