Social Prescribing and Health Improvement

Social Prescribing and Health Improvement

Our social prescribing link workers and health improvement team help with a whole range of non-clinical needs that can have a profound effect on your health and wellbeing. They have time to listen and work with patients over a number of weeks both face to face and by phone/video.

They can put you in touch with community support and groups, as well as come along with you to get you started. They can help you plan what you want to do and get there.

Although they’re unable to do it for you, they’ll be there for you the entire way, listening to your needs and providing all of the information that organisations and groups in Walkden and Little Hulton can do to help you.

First Contact Physiotherapists

First Contact Physiotherapists

Our first contact physiotherapists are here to assess and diagnose any new aches, pains and injuries to your bones, joints and muscles. 

They offer expert advice on how best to manage your condition, arrange follow-up appointments and can refer you to a specialist for further treatment if necessary. They can also speak to the GP straightaway if you need any medication during your appointment.

Physiotherapists train for longer than GPs on issues with bones, joints and muscles so are the perfect specialists to see for these matters. Having a physiotherapist directly at your GP practice means you get seen quicker and recover faster. 

Mental Health Practitioners

Mental Health Practitioners

Living Well Mental Health Practitioners do mental health support differently, with a focus on your skills, aspirations and experiences.

Living Well mental health practitioners are available across all Walkden and Little Hulton GP practices.

They work closely with our GPs and can talk to you about the wide range of treatments that can help you. This may include medication options, therapy or support with relationships, housing, debt or employment.

Whether you’re experiencing new or existing mental health problems, our Mental Health Practitioners are here to offer support that stops difficult times from becoming worse.

Clinical Pharmacists

Clinical Pharmacists

Clinical pharmacists are experts in medicines and how they are used. We are very fortunate to have clinical pharmacists in our team as they can help our doctors and nurses to spend more time with patients while they deal with the majority of medicine-related queries.

Our clinical pharmacists deal with repeat prescriptions, reviews, common minor ailments, urgent medication requests and deal with medication for patients recently discharged from hospital.

Our GPs may ask the clinical pharmacist to get in touch with you if you take lots of medications from time to time. This is to review your symptoms and check they’re still the best medications to be on. Where better, newer alternatives are available, they’ll discuss this with you and your GP.
