The long-term goal of SPRING Social Prescribing is to support and encourage the culture shift from the medical model to the social model of health. There is increased recognition that the social model of health can reduce the pressure on NHS services including GP’s.
SPRING Social Prescribing will make a difference to patients, primary care and communities by ultimately deliver better health outcomes for people and society.
