Changing the conversation about health

The College of Medicine gets ready for the 4th Social Prescribing Network Conference and Social Prescribing Day

Social Prescribing Day is an annual celebration of social prescribing, recognising local community groups and projects which have kept us healthy throughout the pandemic and beyond.

During the week and in the run up to Social Prescribing Day, a wide range of individuals and organisations will be sharing resources and hosting events relating to specific daily themes. You can use the hashtag #SocialPrescribingDay to help spread the word!

The online conference is available to book via Salford University – click here to reserve your tickets – and watch the video above from our Chair, Dr Michael Dixon, and Marie Polley, co-Chair of the Social Prescribing Network, explaining more on what the conference holds below.


Are you a voluntary organisation or community group delivering invaluable social prescribing projects? Are you a healthcare professional? Are you an individual benefiting from social prescribing? Are you an academic? Whoever you are and whatever your connection is with social prescribing, we want to hear your story and encourage your involvement, this Social Prescribing Day 2022.
