Social prescribing: less rhetoric and more reality. A systematic review of the evidence

Social prescribing: less rhetoric and more reality. A systematic review of the evidence

Author: Bickerdike et al (BMJ Open)

Resource type :

A systematic review to assess the evidence for the effectiveness of social prescribing interventions.
