4th International Social Prescribing Network Conference

March 10th – 11th 2022

The conference will be an online event.  Tickets will enable delegates to attend all scheduled sessions on the 10th and 11th March 2022.  There will also be a range of digital content available to delegates for several weeks after the conference – so catching up with sessions you couldn’t attend will be simple.

There will be a mixture of plenary sessions, breakout sessions, research specific presentations, and poster displays interspersed with networking opportunities.  We will have dedicated networking space for meeting exhibitors, presenters, and delegates.  

The conference will address the ‘hot topics’ in social prescribing, in the UK and in other countries as well as sharing the latest international research findings.  The conference programme will be developed in the next few months as we listen to suggestions from the social prescribing network members.  We will update the programmes as speakers are confirmed.  The end of the first day will also include the Social Prescribing Network Awards, where we celebrate the achievements of the social prescribing schemes and people involved.
