Social Prescribing: How and Why?

10 Oct 2019
Best Practice Workshop Theatre

Social Prescribing can change people’s lives. With financial constraints on healthcare continuing to increase, a clear focus needs to be placed not just on addressing clinical needs but also on active prevention, reducing isolation and creating a single, streamlined assessment of individuals’ health, social, psychological and educational needs – only then can a tailored package of care and support truly be delivered. 

  • Why you should embrace the opportunity to take on a Social Prescribing Link Worker - and the candidates to look out for.
  • Understand details of effective Social Prescribing models from around the UK , how they work and how they are funded.
  • Understand the reason that Social Prescribing is included in the NHS Long Term Plan.
  • Understand how Social Prescribing can support patients with complex health and social care needs.
