The ‘Good Health and Wellbeing – Social Prescribing’ Playbook has been launched at the Global Solutions Summit, which took place virtually on 27th and 28th May 2021. 

The Playbook was launched by the National Academy for Social Prescribing, working as part of the Global Social Prescribing Alliance, at the panel session ‘Implementing Good Health and Wellbeing’.

The publication, which is available online, showcases best practices in social prescribing, and highlights shared learning that can support health systems around the world to navigate good health and wellbeing during and after the pandemic.

It is the first product from the Global Social Prescribing Alliance, which was established to progress social prescribing through publicising, collaboration and innovation. The Alliance seeks to consider a new healthcare model that creates value based on prevention and early intervention, which will enable people and communities to thrive, support the existing health services, and create new and meaningful jobs, all while supporting the implementation of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

James Sanderson, Chief Executive of the National Academy for Social Prescribing commented, “social prescribing is now an integral part of the health system in England. It recognises that what makes and keeps us well goes beyond more traditional concepts of medicine.

“The benefits of connecting people to activities within their own communities, and how this can support their mental and physical health and wellbeing has been demonstrated across England over the last year, and is gathering momentum as a global movement. We welcome the opportunity to share our experience across the world through this first global playbook.”
