Social Prescribing and the Wider Determinants of Health

Social prescribing and the wider determinants of health


As part of the NHS Long Term Plan, significant funding has been made available to recruit and train over 1000 Social Prescribing Link Workers, based in Primary Care. Support people with a wide range of social, emotional or practical needs many PCN’s have focused on working in partnership with voluntary and community sector organisations to address people’s needs in a holistic way.
