Green prescriptions are a form of social prescribing: a way for health and social care practitioners to connect the people they are supporting with a range of non-clinical sources of support in the community. Pathways can be used to address existing health concerns; as a form of recovery from ill health or injury; or to encourage social connection.
Green Health is about maintaining a healthy lifestyle through interaction with the natural environment. Any health or social care practitioner who has direct contact with those they support has the opportunity to make a Green Prescription. This includes GPs, physiotherapists, community pharmacists, community mental health practitioners, support workers, midwives, nurses and many more.
We offer a range of green prescribing solutions to suit all ages and needs. Including:
- Nature based volunteering
- Green gym
- A wide range of wellbeing courses
