The ‘Summer Salad Recipe’ class at Knowsley College with some of Care Merseyside Low Carb Lifestyle participants
Using Elemental’s social prescribing platform which connects with all clinical system providers, GPs within the surgery have been connecting individuals into non-clinical sources of support to enhance their health and wellbeing, such as employment initiatives, debt advice, nutrition programmes, floristry and makeup classes via the Towerhill Community Centre social prescribing programme.
In partnership with Big Help Project and Knowsley Foodbank, the aim of the Towerhill Community Centre social prescribing programme is to significantly reduce pressure on GP services by supporting individuals to take greater control of their own health and well-being.
Provided for those with mental health issues, these therapeutic classes allow participants to learn how to create flower arrangements and ‘bloom boxes’
“Elemental has provided us with a platform to present our findings with authority, encourage more partners to collaborate with us, allowed us as an organisation with a small number of staff to help provide a service to a large number of people and made it so easy for GPs and Clinicians to buy in to making a social prescription at a single click of a finger in consultation times.”

“As soon as you meet anyone from the team at Care Merseyside or Maassarani and Partners Practice, you’re hit with this passion for people and their well-being. Cathy and Dr Faisall have been the driving force behind this project and have recruited a team of Link Workers, GPs and healthcare staff who are all equally committed to improving their patient’s lives through social prescribing. This project was always going to be a success, and we’re extremely proud to be the digital partner and have them as an example of the incredible benefits digital social prescribing can have for all stakeholders.”
Leeann Monk Ozgul, Co-CEO and Co-founder, Elemental Software
“We have had numerous testimonials from across the board of how valuable accessing a social prescription has proved to be in helping people in their lives whether it be someone’s HBA1C level dropping after taking part in a low carb programme to someone being ready to return to work after getting some voluntary experience to someone just feeling part of the community again.”
