Researchers based in the School's Evidence Synthesis Working Group at the University of Oxford have been working with the University's gardens, libraries and museums to develop activites which support the improvement of health and wellbeing through 'social prescribing'. The report was published today.
The report, entitled In what ways can gardens, libraries and museums improve wellbeing through social prescribing?, brings together the experience and expertise of health researchers in the University's Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine (CEBM), general practitioners, heritage sector specialists in the University’s Gardens, Libraries and Museums (GLAM), and members of the public.
Based on a 12-month research project, the report explores how gardens, libraries and museums could contribute to health and wellbeing through “social prescribing”, which is a key part of the NHS Long Term Plan and delivery of Universal Personalised Care.
