GP Social Prescribing for Injured Workers Pilot Program

This pilot program aims to improve the wellbeing and social participation of injured workers who have been unable to return to work or who have returned to work on reduced hours. We are focusing on GPs “prescribing” their eligible patients to try two program options to improve social participation and wellbeing post workplace injury:

  • Ways to Wellbeing— a program that identifies injured workers social, welfare, and wellbeing needs and links them to appropriate services
  • Well Together— a specialised program providing supported social participation groups to build wellbeing, inclusion and resilience. Activities may include art classes, yoga, social groups, meditation, exercise and nutrition classes, health education, and gardening.
