Social Prescribing in Wales (Public Health Wales, 2018)
'Social Prescribing in Wales' (Public Health Wales, 2018)
Public Health Wales Primary Care Hub produced this report to record the progress made on social prescribing in Wales over the previous two years and highlight arrangements put in place to build on this work going forward. There is apparently wide professional and political support in Wales for the concept of linking individuals to community based assets. Work undertaken by Public Health Wales (PHW) has identified that there are gaps in the published evidence for social prescribing; there are many excellent examples of social prescribing projects in primary care in Wales, but they are short-term funded and often poorly evaluated.
