Social prescribing service
Social prescribing aims to get to the root causes of people’s ill health and bring about lasting change. The Social Prescribing Service has been running in Skelmersdale since April 2018 and has now been widened to cover the whole of West Lancs. The Social Prescribing Service transferred from CVS to OWLS (GP Federation) in April 2023.
Any resident can be referred into it by their GP.
