The National Association of Social Prescribing has run a summary of Performing Medicine’s pilot programme with Southwark and Merton, written by Carly Annable-Coop.
Carly shares an in-depth view into the workforce development programme which has showed the significant need for cross-sector working to support social prescribing.
As part of the pilot, Performing Medicine scoped, designed and delivered the programme for three professional groups involved in social prescribing of arts and culture, including artists, link workers and GPs.
Carly’s article explains the workshops in more detail, and the evaluation of the programme.
