Report: International Social Prescribing Network Conference July 2019

by Emily Foulkes (Director of Cymaz Music and Singing for Health Practitioner/Researcher)

On 11th and 12th July 2019, the University of Westminster hosted the 2nd International Social Prescribing conference which attracted delegates from more than 13 countries. Attendees were a broad mix of Healthcare professionals, Social Prescribing Link Workers and Managers and organisations/practitioners involved in providing community or complementary activities. The Social Prescribing Network exists to share knowledge and best practice, to support Social Prescribing at a local and national level and to inform good quality research and evaluation. It is supporting the setting up of regional Social Prescribing Networks across England.

This report covers some of the key presentations and then reflects on key themes and headlines from across the conference.
