It was wonderful to see the hashtag #SocialPrescribingDay trending high on Twitter in the UK yesterday (10 March 2022). Utilising our parks and green spaces as part of green social prescribing is set to grow in popularity as it becomes an integral part of UK health and care strategy.
Many health organisations have already embraced social prescribing. The government announced £4million investment for a cross-government pilot project in 2020. They are now working with 7 UK sites as pilots. Aiming to find ways to embed green social prescribing into communities and to also evaluate their success.
