There is emerging evidence that social prescribing can lead to a range of positive health and wellbeing outcomes for people such as improved quality of life and emotional wellbeing. Schemes can involve a variety of activities which are non- clinical and are typically provided by voluntary and community sector organisations, or professional health and wellbeing coaches from your GP Practice. Examples include befriending, gardening, support with long term complaints, healthier eating, exercise, debt guidance and what’s important to you for your health and wellbeing.
