This evaluation paper introduces eight different services providing social prescribing in Wessex and describes our work to understand and evaluate the impact they are having, to support their development.
A mixture of quantitative and qualitative methods were used to evaluate these services, to develop a rounded and rich understanding of the impact that they are making.
They include:

  • R-Outcomes patient-reported outcome measures
  • Qualitative interviews and case studies
  • R-Outcomes staff reported outcome measures
  • Economic evaluation based on changes in A&E and Emergency IP stays.


  1. Hi Tim The report is interesting and thank you for sharing. Is there any Social Prescribing projects initiatives in the Southampton Area? Thanks
  2. I do not know of any projects in Southampton, but social prescribing is now becoming rather popular, because most evaluations are showing good results.
