Aims and Objectives

NHS England is seeking to build its engagement and understanding of voluntary and community sector experiences and perspectives on social prescribing, to enable more effective partnerships and maximise social prescribing’s contribution to the ambitions of the Long Term Plan and relevant Universal Personalised Care (UPC) Actions.

For social prescribing to fulfil its potential, there needs to be strong relationships and close collaboration between the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sector (VCSE) and local health and care systems. There is still more to do to build these partnerships consistently across the country.

National Voices has been commissioned by the NHS England Personalised Care Group (PCG) to work with the VCSE to explore the critical issues that need to be addressed to enable effective social prescribing and to develop suggested solutions with the VCSE sector.

As a result of this work their report Rolling Out Social Prescription has now been launched.
