Community Groups


Solutions is our Lowestoft Social Prescribing project and is run by North East Suffolk Citizen Advice Bureau (NESCAB). Every GP surgery has weekly appointments with Solutions advisers who can help people with a whole range of social problems that could impact on their health. We know by tackling these non-medical issues alongside medical ones we can improve the lives of people more. GPs or clinical staff in the surgery can make appointments with Solutions.
