Social Prescribing – impact on the VCS

Some organisations are happy with social prescribing and have built good relationships with their local co-ordinators/GPs.  Others have signed up to the scheme but have received few or no referrals and found it difficult to get on the co-ordinators’ radar.  This is the main conclusion from a survey we ran in the summer looking at the impact of social prescribing on the VCS.

We have shared our findings with the University of the West of England who are evaluating the social prescribing pilot on behalf of the Clinical Commissioning Group.  The full report is still being finalised but you can read a summary of our findings here..
