Social Prescribing: Making it Happen

The Innovation Unit has launched an Asset Based Care Best Practice Guide produced for the Greater Manchester Public Health Network. The guide proposes that an asset based model of primary care will help to realise a different relationship between public services and the communities and people they support – one that taps into the existing skills and resources in people and places to reduce demand on primary and secondary health and care services.

It aims to be practical, highlighting examples of asset based approaches from both within Greater Manchester and beyond; informed by research with commissioners, GPs, the community and voluntary sector, public health professionals, patients and the general population.
