Hi, I am Becky, the Social Prescribing Advisor for Cressage and Wenlock Surgery.
I have been helping motivate people across Shropshire to help themselves for over a decade for a number of health issues including smoking cessation and weight management. In my spare time I am a trustee of The Dry Bar Trust and have been involved with youthwork and education for many years and am currently a group co-ordinator for Adoption UK in Shropshire.
People can be referred to me for a variety of reasons, maybe you have an underlying health condition, are lonely or isolated. Are experiencing low level mental health difficulties, a Carer or need some support to stop smoking or lose weight.
I help patients to understand their health and wellbeing needs and support them in setting realistic goals and developing an action plan to achieve these. I can also help you to access support and services within your own community by signposting or direct referrals although these are more limited at present.
