Social Prescribing Quality Assurance

Many of our practitioners are working with local social prescribing, this is a development in health care referral that we as Nature and Health can provide many relevant services for. 

 

Below is an overview of the recommended quality requirements as set out in the document below the picture. We recommend you read this if you wish to work with social prescribing.
