Connect Well Essex is an online self-care self-referral tool containing over 400 local activities and services. ‘Social prescribing’ links patients with appropriate, non-medical support and guidance. In the same way that a patient with a prescription can get their medication easily from a pharmacist, they will be able to access the services that will help them improve their wellbeing here on Connect Well Essex.
This site features activities that can help people make positive changes in their lives and within their communities by linking to voluntary and community groups and other non clinical services that can help them to feel more involved in the community, meet new people, make some changes to improve health and wellbeing.
