Social prescribing project

New project launching October 2018 

Imago working in partnership with NHS DGSS Clinical Commissioning Group (DGSS CCG), are pleased to announce that we are one of twenty-three organisations across England that have been awarded funding to deliver an innovative social prescribing project to improve patients quality of life, health and wellbeing. 

The proposed Imago model will expand on an existing scheme to align with the new sustainability and transformation partnership model for local care across Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley.

The scheme covers both the Integrated Discharge Team at Darent Valley Hospital and the Downs Way Medical Practice, and the expansion will reach 36 GP practices and identify patients with multiple conditions and complex needs and provide additional support.  A team of volunteer peer supporters in each local care team will be recruited and supported to add value to the paid social prescribing link worker roles.

The scheme will launch in October 2018 – revisit our website nearer the time for more information.
