Evergreen Life and Public Consulting Group (PCG) have joined forces to launch an innovative new digital Social Prescribing tool that helps people access community resources.
The tool has been co-designed with three Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and Bradford Metropolitan District Council. It is initially being deployed in three GP practices across Bradford and Wharfedale before being made available in other areas. Its aim is to help people take control of their health and wellbeing, by connecting them with groups and activities in their community.
