Westminster Health Forum

Where next for social prescribing in England - outcomes, patient choice and cost-effectiveness

April 2018


The seminar discussed what more might be done to support the increased use of social prescribing in England.


Key areas for discussion on the day included:


  • The role of social prescribing in STPs and London’s Health Inequalities Strategy;
  • Progress of the Integrated Personal Commissioning programme;
  • Implications for primary care: resources, workload and developing a standardised referral mechanism;
  • Priorities for developing quality assurance requirements for service providers;
  • The use of advice on prescription in addressing the underlying causes of ill-health;
  • Challenges for building up the evidence base and scaling up; and
  • Key issues around prevention, the potential for long-term savings, and the potential impact on commissioning.
