MyScript is BANES’ Social Prescribing Service and is part of the award-winning charity DHI. Through carefully guided conversations we help patients to unpick non-medical issues which may underlie or exacerbate patients’ health conditions. Offering 3 appointments the team act as community navigators to link patients to the community resources they need: this could be housing or debt advice, counselling, activities, opportunities to socialise or manage a long-term condition.
Over 91% of our users report an improvement in their wellbeing and all referrals are appropriate; there is almost always something we can offer patients to make some positive lifestyle changes.
We work in GP surgeries, clients’ homes and community venues and are open to anyone aged 18+ who is registered with a BANES GP.
Patients can self-refer by ringing 01225 310077, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or using the form on DHI’s website http://www.dhi-online.org.uk/do/bath/my-script-social-prescribing/
