Lorraine joined Thurrock CVS in November 2016 as a Social Prescribing Navigator. 

Together with members of the social prescribing project team, they have helped launched Social Prescribing in Thurrock. This exciting and valuable pilot project has already supported many Thurrock residents.

GPs refer patients to the social prescribing project who have social, emotional and practical needs. There are over 500 services available in Thurrock, including counselling, debt and legal advice, health services and socially supporting networks.

The social prescribing team work closely with the Stronger Together team, voluntary sector, and Local Area Coordinators and refer patients to the services that will help them to achieve the best possible outcome - If patients would like to be referred to Social Prescribing they should speak to their GP.

In her spare time, Lorraine enjoys spending time with her family, looking after her horse, going for a peaceful walk or a going to the theatre.
