The College of Medicine and ITN Productions have launched a news and current affairs-style programme ‘Food for Thought,’ which explores an alternative approach to healthcare, known as ‘social prescribing’. Social prescribing, an integral part of the GP Forward View, enables GPs, nurses and other primary care professionals to refer people to a range of local, non-clinical services.
Drawing upon ITN’s 60 year heritage and expertise in storytelling, the “Food for Thought” videos include interviews including members of the public, NHS England, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence and The Royal Derby Hospital.
The College of Medicine is a partner in the Social Prescribing Network.
