Emily Fitzgerald is our new Social Prescriber here at Temple House Practice.
What is Social Prescribing?
Social Prescribing is working with patients in a holistic and broad way addressing issues that don’t tend to be strictly medical, but can make you feel unwell i.e. loneliness, debts, housing worries, mental health, lack of direction/motivation, help to live independently at home, search for meaningful activities. We would work together over a short period of time to identify services and activities that best match your needs and through conversations and information build your confidence to access services.
Here’s a little bit about Emily:
Emily has been working in care and support for the past 10 years in a variety of roles which she has thoroughly enjoyed and has a Foundation Degree in Mental Health Practice.
