Our 3rd Social Prescribing Network Awards are now open for entry!

We are excited to announce that the Social Prescribing Network Awards will be back as part of our 4th International Social Prescribing Network conference which will be held online on the 10th & 11th of March 2022.




Once again we are partnering with Chamberlain Dunn, The College of Medicine & some amazing sponsors to recognise achievements in the world of social prescribing.

Our awards programme, now in its third year, recognises and celebrates the wealth of innovative social prescribing projects and schemes running throughout the UK and internationally.  Everyone involved in social prescribing has until 5pm BST, Monday 13th December 2021 to enter the 2022 Social Prescribing Network awards.

Our award categories this year are:
