Elemental Announced as Key Sponsor at International Social Prescribing Network Conference
We’re delighted to announce Elemental will be a key sponsor at the second International Social Prescribing Network Conference, which takes place in London at the University of Westminster from 11 – 12 July 2019.
International Social Prescribing Network Conference
Focused around the theme of ‘from system to local’, the two-day collaborative conference will explore the latest research and thinking on the implementation and practice of social prescribing around the world, including Canada, the Netherlands, Singapore, Finland and progress in the UK and Ireland.
This year, Elemental will showcase our award-winning social prescribing platform and the newest addition to our digital social prescribing product portfolio, Self Refer. Our expert team will be on hand to discuss our range of social prescribing products and services, which aim to help enhance the impact of your social prescribing programmes and enable you to evidence quantifiable outcomes and demonstrate your organisation’s social value.
Delegates will be invited to experience our digital social prescribing Core platform in action, which allows referral agents such as GPs, primary and secondary care professionals, housing officers, Link Workers and others to make, manage and report on referrals to local social prescribing hubs with ease and confidence.
We’ll also showcase
- Our new Self-Refer kiosk, which empowers patients to manage and maintain their own social prescribing referrals
- How our customers are boosting the impact of their social prescribing programmes using Elemental
- How digital technologies can support and enhance social prescribing programmes

Taking A Look Back
Since exhibiting at the inaugural International Social Prescribing Network Conference last year, we’ve announced major partnerships with local authorities, primary care organisations, housing associations and prison services, with 404 Link Workers making direct referrals using the platform, 28,095 visits carried out and 142 hubs now live.
We’ve also announced a groundbreaking partnership with Insignia Health which will see customers being able to carry out PAM® assessments directly from Elemental. As well as that, we’ve continued to hear customer success stories and listen to those commissioning, designing and delivering social prescribing programmes so we can make it even easier than ever to engage more people in your community in self-care.
