Find out more about why our customers love our digital social prescribing platform.

Referral Portal

A safe and easy way to make and manage referrals to local social prescribing programme. Referrals can be made by GPs, Nurses, Community Mental Health teams, Housing Officers, Social Workers  and many more.  

Citizens/patients can be referred via a number of referral pathways.  Fully flexible to suit your own social prescribing programme. Refer via:

  • GP Systems (using our social prescription connector integration Elemental Connector Plus)
  • Elemental Core platform referral portal 

Anyone making a referral can receive updates and notifications on how their referral is progressing, and subsequently how the citizen/patient is being supported within the programme. Social prescribers can send back notes and updates, or they can check in themselves to see the direct impact the programmes and services have had on the citizen/patients health and wellbeing. 

Additionally curious or self motivated citizens/patients can take control and refer themselves to their local social prescribing programme (using our bolt on product Elemental Population Plus), generating their own social prescribing package, or initially working with a social prescriber to get started, before taking more control over time.
