Suffolk & North East Essex Shadow Integrated Care System

Social prescribing initiative expanded across east Suffolk

September/October 2019

Connect for Health is a free and confidential service for adults who need specialist support to help them with non-medical issues that impact negatively on their overall health.  Approximately one third of all GP appointments are made by patients who have nothing medically wrong with them.  Instead, they want to talk to their doctor about issues such as debt, loneliness and relationship problems.
