#65: Social Prescribing with Dr Mohan Sekeram

Dr Mohan Sekeram is the Regional Clinical Lead for Person-Centred Care for the RCGP. He is a London Deanery Trainer; is the Locality Lead for East Merton CCG and he is a GP Partner. Mohan’s work has set the gold standard for social prescribing and introducing Link Workers to primary care.


Mohan joins me today to talk about social prescribing. He shares what the difference is between social prescribing and link workers, what social prescribing is and the evidence of the effectiveness of social prescribing. He talks about why we should ask patients ‘what matters to you?’ rather than ‘what is the matter with you?’ He also shares how important it is to make the time to implement initiatives that bring patients, communities, and the practice together.


“Why medicalise all these problems when in fact actually you need a non-medical solution and getting to the root cause of the issue by being person-centred will help us get the right outcome.” Dr Mohan Sekeram

  • What social prescribing is.
