South Tees Social Prescribing Business Case

As Social prescribing is beginning to get more and more air time in terms of meetings, events and publications here at MVDA we thought it might be of interest to share with you some of our early thinking that shaped the development of the South Tees Social Prescribing Business Case which we developed way back in 2014/15.

However, it is fair to say that this thinking is still the basis of social prescribing in general and we hope you find this information helpful and useful.  The information includes:

  • The Executive Summary from the original Business Case
  • Our concept delivery model
  • A performance framework
  • A possible referral pathway
