For the NHS HLP Social Prescribing and Self Care Wiki


in 2017 the AgileVentures charity was awarded a contract on a tender put out by the NHS HLP Proactive Care team to build a wiki to support knowledge management for commissioners (UK clinical folks who assign budgets to pay for health related services throughout the UK) and other interested stakeholders working with Social Prescribing in the UK. Social Prescribing, sometimes referred to as community referral, is a means of enabling GPs, nurses and other staff working in the health and care sectors to refer people to a range of local, non-clinical services.

The wiki went live on May 4th 2017, and AgileVentures continues to host, maintain, moderate and develop the wiki. Here are some documents on the original design and development process.
