Social prescribing schemes boosted by health and wellbeing fund

Social prescribing initiatives throughout the country will share £4.5m to extend existing schemes or start new ones.

The fund is expected to benefit 23 projects in England. Social prescribing aims to improve patients’ quality of life, health and wellbeing by recognising that health is affected by a range of social, economic and environmental factors. It has also been shown to reduce demand on NHS services.
