Social Prescribing in secondary care: how to guide
In his recent vision for prevention, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock MP said, “We need to change the mind set from condition management to health creation.” One way to do this is through complementary, evidence-based approaches such as Social Prescribing.
Commissioned by Healthy London Partnership, Family Action has produced a guide that will support you to efficiently and effectively commission, implement and deliver Social Prescribing services in secondary care.

Case study: Tackling health inequalities with the London Choosing Wisely programme
In December 2017, London’s CCG Accountable Officers commissioned a series of clinical expert working groups to inform the harmonisation of clinical commissioning policies for a limited number of specific treatments.
The aim was to ensure that Londoners have equal access to these treatments across London, to make sure they are used consistently, and that their use follows criteria that improves the health of patients.

Following the success of our multi-agency Mental Health Act training sessions that took place at each Mental Health Trust in 2017/18, we are offering further bespoke training in Spring 2019 to London’s frontline ED staff.
In October 2015, Ageing Better in Camden undertook a two year project, which saw thirteen pharmacies in the borough commissioned to identify older people who were lonely or isolated and refer them to a Camden Community Connector.
