Wadebridge library is supporting International Social Prescribing Day on Thursday March 14th.

An exciting concept for healthcare that involves a “prescription” of activities such as exercise or attending community groups to help patients with issues such as depression, type 2 diabetes and many more. The NHS has recently embraced this concept in an attempt to reduce the need for medication and stop preventable health conditions from developing.

Social Prescribing Day will be an opportunity to spread the word and get as many people supporting the cause as possible.
