Is social prescribing the future for healthcare?
September 20, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm
The 2022 Albert Medal Event
Andrew Mawson and Sam Everington first pioneered social prescribing at the Bromley by Bow Centre in East London by offering services that go beyond what people typically receive at GP surgeries. Their approach recognises how patients often have more than one need and makes it easier for individuals to access different levels of practical and emotional support in their local area.
RSA Chief Executive Andy Haldane will present Sam Everington and Andrew Mawson with the 2022 RSA Albert Medal for their pioneering work in integrated healthcare, and in their award address they will describe their ongoing efforts to put social prescribing at the heart of building healthier communities.
The RSA Albert Medal is awarded annually to recognise the creativity and innovation of individuals and organisations working to resolve the challenges of our times. The Medal was instituted in 1864 as a memorial to Prince Albert, former President of the Society.
The RSA has been at the forefront of significant social impact for over 260 years. Find out more about the global network of entrepreneurs, educators and innovators working together for the advancement of society, the economy and the environment.
