Healthy London Partnership’s Proactive Care Team are working in partnership with the Greater London Authority and London STPs and CCGs to support the spread and scale of social prescribing in London.
We have produced two animations to explain what social prescribing is and how it can benefit people and communities - https://wiki.healthylondon.org/Video_resource. The animations are available on our wikipedia website which is an open-source platform to bring together all the information, advice and evidence about social prescribing into one place.
We have also produced two new short films in partnership with Merton CCG to showcase their Social Prescribing scheme that has been successfully piloted in 2 GP practices with plans to spread to a total of 9 practices across East Merton this year.
This film captures stories from patients who have been linked up with support and activities in their local communities by the social prescribers and the difference it has made to their health and sociality -
This film provides useful advice from all the key partners involved about how to set up and deliver a social prescribing connector scheme within primary care -
