Social Prescribing is a new way of working in health care that connects patients with non-medical services in the community, e.g. to a mindfulness course, an environmental project, to a befriending scheme or to a support group. It gives people the opportunity to improve their well being through access to support services that promote learning, socialising and confidence-building.

This session will support health professionals to:

• Understand the benefits of social prescribing
• The different types of social prescribing
