Application/Key learning points: Social Prescribing means that general practitioners, nurses or other healthcare practitioners work with patients to identify non-medical opportunities or interventions that will help them adopt healthier lifestyles or improve wider social aspects of their lives. Patients are thus referred to a range of local, non- clinical services, often provided by the voluntary and community sector. Spoken Minds is a group using spoken word or performance poetry as a tool to enhance wellbeing. It is part of the City and Hackney Wellbeing Network, which offers targeted programmes for mental and physical wellbeing, as well as free support to help people prevent the onset of mental health problems and alleviate issues such as stress or anxiety. It offers a wide range of groups and courses to support people to improve their daily living skills and social networks. The Network Navigator helps people receive the right kind of well-coordinated support at the right time. When stressed, people with Type 2 diabetes generally experience an increase in blood glucose levels. As diabetes management is a lifelong process, this can add stress to their daily lives. Healthcare providers could create a social prescribing model for pre-diabetics and diabetics. In addition, people recently diagnosed with diabetes, especially young diabetics, are vulnerable to depression and stress. These programmes can be tailor-made for targeted segmented groups within corporates, public sector and communities exposed to stress and pressure challenges. The third video explores how NHS Scotland uses social prescribing.
