Information from the event organisers:

 

We expect discussion on adapting established organisations to support social prescribing, including in the arts and culture sector, to deliver cultural interventions such as Arts on Prescription, I thought this might be of interest. There will be a speaking contribution from Rt Hon the Lord Howarth of Newport, Co-Chair, All-Party Parliamentary Group on Arts, Health and Wellbeing.

With applications for the Health And Wellbeing Fund now open, further sessions will assess the opportunities for third and voluntary sector collaboration with GPs, and the challenges this may present, as well as the role of link workers in assessing service users’ needs and identifying appropriate interventions, and the priorities for developing quality assurance requirements for service providers.

 

Overall areas for discussion include:

  • Social prescribing in context: scope, policy and the current national picture;
  • The role of social prescribing in STPs;
  • Social prescribing and self-care - progress of the IPC programme;
  • Implications for primary care: resources, workload and developing a standardised referral mechanism;
  • Priorities for developing quality assurance requirements for service providers;
  • The use of advice on prescription in addressing the underlying causes of ill-health;
  • Effectiveness, personalisation and support - service users and social prescribing; and
  • Social prescribing in practice - costs, quality and evaluating outcomes.

 

The agenda has been structured following consultation with officials from NHS England. The draft agenda is copied below my signature, and a regularly updated version is available to download here. The seminar is organised on the basis of strict impartiality by the Westminster Health Forum. Follow us @WHFEvents for live updates.

Output and About Us

It will also be made available more widely. This document will include transcripts of all speeches and questions and answers sessions from the day, along with access to PowerPoint presentations, speakers’ biographies, an attendee list, an agenda, sponsor information, as well as any subsequent press coverage of the day and any articles or comment pieces submitted by delegates. It is made available subject to strict restrictions on public use, similar to those for Select Committee Uncorrected Evidence, and is intended to provide timely information for interested parties who are unable to attend on the day.

The Westminster Health Forum is strictly impartial and cross-party, and draws on the considerable support it receives from within Parliament and Government, and amongst the wider stakeholder community. The Forum has no policy agenda of its own. Forum events are frequently the platform for major policy statements from senior Ministers, regulators and other officials, opposition speakers and senior opinion-formers in industry and interest groups. Events regularly receive prominent coverage in the national and trade press.
