Social Prescribing in Primary Care – A Case Study



The South West Primary Care Cluster in Cardiff has developed a social prescribing model which is well embedded into its community support structure, linking the third sector, local authorities, and healthcare providers to offer a cost effective, community and person-centered approach to the most disadvantaged in their care. The project has been running for over a year and data is showing the impact this model is having across the system, with fewer secondary care referrals, improved experience, and improved overall quality of life and outcomes for the patients who access it.
