Successful Befriending Bid with Aberfeldy Health Centre

We are pleased to announce that Perth and Kinross Council have awarded The Care and Wellbeing Co-operative funding to pilot ‘social prescription’ work with GPs and Health Professionals at Aberfeldy Health Centre. Co-op members will offer 10 patients referred by GPs their services in a bid to promote their wellbeing.The patients will not require medical intervention but may benefit from social interaction, engagement in active, outdoor or creative activities or simply some company to get back involved in their local community.

A measure of patients wellbeing at the start of the project will be carried out and also 3 months later to ascertain the impact of using member’s services.
