“With GPs under increasing pressure, this pilot demonstrates the impact that digital technology can make to enhancing social prescribing projects, as well as relieving pressure on primary care services. We’ve been working closely with the teams at Clapham Park Practice and SAIL to co-design a referral pathway that would help to enhance the impact of their existing social prescribing programmes and services and we’re delighted with the results in such a short period of time.”

“Piloting Elemental software at our GP practice in London demonstrated ‘real world’ application of a digital platform that quite simply, works. With minimal training, clinicians were able to refer patients simply and securely direct from our existing clinical system, and the social prescriber was able to review referrals, assess patients and refer onwards as needed. Elemental allowed for easy capture of data which was vital for monitoring and evaluation when assessing the impact of the intervention. Social prescribing in primary care relies on a trusted person-to-person working relationship, and Elemental software supports this efficiently and effectively, without getting in the way of the human touch”
