Two reports about the social prescribing pilots in Homerton Hospital

From Social Prescribing news

Here are  two new reports about the Social Prescribing pilot in Homerton Hospital, London. The Proactive Care team at Healthy London Partnerships commissioned Family Action to deliver this social prescribing service between Dec 2017-June 2018. There is a far more extensive evidence base for social prescribing in the GP/primary care space and so we hope this focus on secondary care will be welcomed and of real interest to wider NHS organisations nationally, as well as the research community.
 
The ‘How to Guide’ aims to practical advice to commissioners looking to develop social prescribing in secondary care and what an effective model looks like, and the evaluation report outlines the outcomes of the pilot with patient case studies and an indication of the wellbeing value of the service.


Help improve signage in Hackney Libraries

“Dear colleagues

 Hackney Library Services is currently working on a project to improve the signage and way finding across all Hackney Libraries. 

 

We are working with an interior design company to create a Design Guide for all signage within Hackney’s libraries. We are keen that this is accessible to disabled people, so we are keen to get input from a range of disabled people.

 

Please e-mail to let me know if you would be interested in attending a focus group to discuss this.

 

Best wishes
