Parkside Surgery and the CLARE project are working in partnership to pilot a GP social prescribing model for older people living in North Belfast. The pilot will enable people to live independently and stay socially connected within their communities by providing assistance to connect to existing services, support to attend health care appointments and offer volunteer befriending in the home and on social outings.

Crohn's & Colitis UK
We fight Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. In fact, Crohn’s and Colitis UK is the leading charity in the battle against these and other forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
Our mission is to work with all those affected by these conditions to achieve a better quality of life, improve services, and ultimately find a cure.
We want to see a world in which people’s lives are not limited by Crohn’s and Colitis.
