THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
With pressures mounting upon primary care services, this seminar will provide a timely opportunity to discuss the next steps for scaling up social prescribing within England.
Delegates will discuss the priorities for social prescriptions within Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs), the effectiveness and sustainability of different models in improving health outcomes and the role of the third sector, especially Voluntary and Community Organisations (VCOs), in empowering local communities and transforming care.
Further areas for discussion include opportunities for digital innovation to increase the accessibility to social prescriptions, priorities for developing a specialised workforce such as link workers, and the role of social prescribing in supporting self-care and the prevention agenda.
This conference will bring together members of both Houses of Parliament, and senior government officials involved in healthcare, together with representatives from the NHS; Local Government Associations for health, public health and social care; the independent and third sectors; patients’ groups; and others affected by the issues discussed as well as academics and think tanks, and reporters from the national and specialist press.
