Tackling health inequalities in Sheffield
SOAR is aiming to tackle health inequalities in North East Sheffield with their GP signposting Service. By linking with GP surgeries in the local area to develop a system of signposting patients to local services and activities. Patients can be referred for non-clinical issues, many of whom will be retained within SOAR’s current health, advocacy, debt or employment services.
The project has been hugely successful and SOAR are seeing great results in terms of how many people are being referred to services and activities. This report highlights the key outputs and outcomes of the project and is being used to promote the project to existing and prospective stakeholders.
