AHPs and social prescribing

Published: 13 August, 2019

Social prescribing is key to the government’s prevention agenda based in general practice. In its report Driving forward social prescribing: A framework for Allied Health Professionals the Royal Society for Public Health highlights the different ways that AHPs can engage with social prescribing. This can range from light touch ‘active signposting’, to referring individuals to link workers and, at the more time intensive end of the scale, taking the role of social prescriber themselves. It describes the ways that AHPs can develop social prescribing in their local areas, from supporting link workers through to being providers of a social prescribing service.
