Social Prescribing in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw

The South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw ICS has produced a document showcasing the Social Prescribing Services across the region.  This document demonstrates the power of collaboration and integration across complex local systems and brings to life how non-medical sources of support can have a big impact on people's lives. 

We are proud that this document  will be used as an example of good practice by NHS England and will be shared on their new learning platform in late December 2018. 

All five Places in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw; Barnsley, Bassetlaw, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffied have a social prescribing service. A total of over 10,000 people access social prescribing each year. The first scheme was launched in Rotherham in 2012, with others developing over the next six years. While the services have all developed differently to meet local needs and aspirations, they all have the same core principles.
