This February, Performing Medicine will pilot a workforce development programme in Southwark and Merton which explores how arts and culture can play a key role in healthcare and social prescribing.
The programme consists of modules designed to meet the needs of the different people working in this field and based in Southwark & Merton. Find out more about each course via the links below.
In the final module GPs, link workers, social prescribers and arts organisations will come together to explore how they might work together to develop healthy, creative communities.
The course will support this complex, cross-sector workforce to develop practical skills at the same time as nuturing a rich interprofessional community – who understand each other’s contexts and how best to communicate effectively with each other, as well as with the people who are being referred to them.
This workforce development programme is led by Performing Medicine alongside a powerful consortium of partners including the Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance. The 2020-21 pilot is funded by the Greater London Authority and the Healthy London Partnership.
