Social Prescribing Survey

HDU have received this request from Dr Simon Lennane GP, Alton Street Surgery, Ross-on-Wye and are placing the information on our website to expand the spread of this consultation.

As locality GP Champions, we are developing social prescribing in Herefordshire. If your role involves helping people within Herefordshire, we would like to understand the issues you are faced with. Terms like social prescribing can describe a multitude of interventions, and we would like to focus our efforts on the needs of the people you work with.
Thanks for helping with the survey. It should take no more than 5 minutes or so to complete.

This is by no means an exhaustive list so feel free to suggest further questions. Please forward it to anyone you think would be interested. Social prescribing needs to be accessible to everyone working with people, whether within health or social care, education, faith groups or voluntary organisations, so it will help to spread this further afield. There is a link at the end & it would be helpful to get people, especially from outside health, involved, or you can send them this link: Click here

We ask for your e-mail address only so we can contact people who have requested the results - you can opt out of any communications at the end. It also lets us show you other (anonymised) responses at the end of the survey.
If you would prefer to answer anonymously, please use a fake e-mail, such as as we can't make the e-mail question optional. You'll have to be creative and choose a random number here as it won't let you use an e-mail address someone has already used.

Consultation until 12th November 2017

Cutting funding to Herefordshire Carers

Herefordshire Council is continuing to face significant reductions in government funding. As a result they are looking at every service they provide to consider whether it is being delivered in the most effective way to provide a quality service for those who need it.
As part of this approach, they are considering making some reductions in funding to Crossroads Care and Herefordshire Carers Support for delivering services to the county’s carers.
Check out this link to complete the survey if you are a carer in this county.
