Whither social prescribing?

Kimberlee, Richard



My interest in what I call 'holistic' social prescribing has been lifelong. I grew up in a small town in worcestershire where my mother was the practice manager of a local surgery. ln the 1960s, engagement with GPs were more than nine-minute encounters. They knew their patients and their families and worked tirelessly to evolve and engage local resources €o promore communal wellbeing.working as a public health economist today we see local people trying to recreate these transformative intentions to achieve a more effective approach to promote wellbeing.
