East of England Social Prescribing Event

This is a free event organised by the EoE Regional Social Prescribing Network and aims to:

  • Celebrate national and regional process in delivering SP
  • Further build the regional network and share skills, opportunities and challenges across disciplines
  • Influence developments of the new National Social Prescribing Academy
  • Welcome - and provide learning opportunities to - all social prescribers but particularly new Primary Care Network Link Workers in the region
  • Support commissioners, voluntary sector organisations and a broad range of stakeholders and partners to work together to address health inequalities and the social determinants of health and enhance the social prescribing offer in the East of England
  • Launch the Herts and West Essex Integrated Social Prescribing Model (optional lunchtime event)
  1. Context

Following successful conferences held over the past few years, there has been a growing movement across the region to position social prescribing as a key tool for creating good health and wellbeing.

This event will build on this work by bringing together people from:

  • NHS (including PCNs, Providers, Commissioners, GPs and NHSE etc)
  • Local government (commissioners, social care, Public Health, housing etc)
  • Voluntary and Community and Social Enterprise sectors
  • The worlds of arts and sport and leisure
  • Carers’ organisations
  • And many others

The event will update on national and regional agendas including personalised care and social prescribing. 

A choice of two workshops will be available (out of 11 possible options) and regional key note speakers will focus on SP and:

·        Loneliness

·        The Arts

·        Population Health

·        Evaluation

·        Expansion and Integration

·        Two Link Worker only sessions (on ABCD and ‘values and transformation’)


·        High Intensity Users and Right Care

·        Personalisation

·        Carers and exercise

·        Volunteering



A lunchtime event (optional) in the main hall will see the launch of the Herts and West Essex Integrated Social Prescribing Model supporting 30+ new Link Workers across the STP in a way that works alongside the existing service.

Who should attend?

The event will be of interest to link workers and other social prescribers, primary care networks, clinical commissioning groups, public health, voluntary and community organisations, local authorities, GPs and Primary Care Staff, ICS/STP staff, academics, community groups, and other key stakeholders.

Why should you attend?

The morning will provide opportunities to learn about the latest national and regional social prescribing developments, and for participants to take part in the themed workshops where you will help shape our approach to building better partnerships and approaches to tackling health inequalities through social prescribing. A special theme of this event will be how social prescribing fits within the Personalised Care model.

  • Understand better how social prescribing can contribute to reducing health inequalities
  • Develop ideas for partnership working including approaches to support primary care networks
