''I just want to say a huge thank you to the social prescribing team who called me after a home visit from the GP. I have had to try and organise a carer for my In-Laws urgently and did not have a clue how difficult it would be. Suzi chatted through the types of care and the referral options in adult social care and guided me through the options. I received a prompt email providing links to PA providers. Great support from a knowledgeable team. Thank you.''

Mrs R,
