A recent influential Parliamentary report, Creative Health, found that one arts on prescription project administered by the charity Artlift led to a 37% drop in GP visits and a 39% reduction in hospital admissions. This produced a net saving of £216 per patient.

 

This is a great example of how social prescribing can improve lives for the most needy people, and release time for care.
