Abstract:

This is a practical and easily accessible guide to implementing self-care, with a focus on social prescribing. Published by Healthy London Partnership, it aims to support clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) to work closely with appropriate local partners to increase the number of people who care for themselves effectively.

This document has been developed with input from a wide range of stakeholders across London and the UK. It is designed to help local leaders to implement their STPs. It is intended to be practical, easily accessible, and to stimulate local leaders to work closely with appropriate partners to increase the number of people who are effectively caring for themselves. Examples are included to show a variety of ways that outcomes can be achieved – the January edition (here as the download) includes projected savings through the use of Arts on Prescription.

London has committed to promoting the health and wellbeing of its citizens. This includes helping people look after their own health better, and making it easier to use health services when needed. All London’s sustainability and transformation plans feature increased self-care and prevention.
