Social Prescribing

The Council has now integrated the East Herts Social Prescribing Service (EHSPS) into the Healthy Hub East Herts offer which offers support for your health, social and wellbeing needs.

The aim of the social prescribing service will remain the same working with a range of trusted partners to provide a variety of useful support for people with social, emotional or practical needs that can be helped by non-clinical services.

The Healthy Hub East Herts team will make contact with referred residents to discuss and jointly agree a range of options and resulting actions that may help. This could include signposting referrals to appropriate local community groups who can offer a wide range of socially engaging activities. Where possible, help with transport to or from a venue may be arranged. 

The Healthy Hub East Herts has continued to accept new referrals during the whole of the Covid pandemic and can help you re-adjust to the many affects Covid may have had on your health and wellbeing. The Healthy Hub East Herts works with a wide range of health professionals and voluntary sector organisations to understand your needs and what can be done to support you going forward.
