Abstract

This paper outlines a small study undertaken to assess user perspectives on the concept of social prescription services. Social prescribing is a mechanism linking patients in primary care with non-medical sources of support within the community. The work presented here supports the idea of patients becoming ‘active partners’ by providing health literature that is designed to suit their health literacy along with a service which introduces patients to actual programmes and services in their local area which suit their specific condition. By using innovative digital technology patient engagement is encouraged leading to greater self-care and independence in relation to long-term condition management.
