'Measuring the economic impact of Wellspring Healthy Living Centre's Social Prescribing Wellbeing Programme for low level mental health issues encountered by GP services' (Mar 2014)

Summary

Having established the social impact of the Wellbeing Programme we calculate a Social Return On Investment ratio of £2.90:£1. This means that for every pound of investment in the intervention, £2.90 of social value is created. We feel this is a very parsimonious reflection of the actual value created. Health economists like Knapp et al (2011) suggest quantifying these impacts across all beneficiary life years, whereas we are just reflecting on one year of value.
