Know Your Own Health

GP Practice Websites & Social Prescribing Hubs

  • Unlocking patients' potential 

    Over 20% of GP appointments are for non-medical issues such as housing, finances, lonliness and emotional support. 

    Our GP websites and Social Prescribing hub-sites enable GP practices to utilise their websites as powerful channels for supporting patients to self-manage their health and wellbeing.

    We provide a dynamic and affordable web template with an emphasis on supporting people to self-manage and providing navigation and signposting to social prescriptions.

    Benefits include:

    • Reductions in pressure in surgery time
    • Provision and maintenance of direct links to local resources and social prescriptions
    • Helps make 'Social Prescribing' make sense to both staff and patients
    • Saves time and cost with a proactive and preventative culture

    The approach has been co-produced with GPs and is based around local Social Prescribing Hubs, which hold resources, support and service info on a central database.

    This makes local information easy to maintain and enables it to be automatically updated on any GP website that use the KYOH GP website template.  

    For example, in Paignton and Brixham, South Devon, three GP practices are pulling their local support and social prescribing information from the same hub site. Find out how Dr Mark Thompson from Old Farm Surgery in Paignton uses their GP Website.

    "I am very impressed with your website, and for such a small surgery! The section on mental health is really useful as it contains links to many helpful sites. Thank you for taking the time to create such a detailed and easy to navigate website.  Keep up the good work!"
