Social prescribing and digital technologies to improve healthcare

8 September 2021

Social prescribing promises to shake up the way we think about healthcare, while digital technologies have transformed the way we live and work. How can social prescribing and digital technologies be used to complement each other, and improve the health and wellbeing of all?

CATCH has recently been part of a project attempting to answer this question, led by the University of Oxford and with the involvement of

  • Aspire, a charity supporting people in Oxfordshire experiencing homelessness and disadvantage

  • Blenheim Estate, with its famous Palace and grounds, and

  • the world-renowned Eden Project.

Learn more about the project by watching this video on YouTube which we've recently commissioned.

The project has been sponsored by the Pitch-In (Promoting the Internet of Things via Collaboration between HEIs and Industry) programme, supported by Research England's Connecting Capability Fund.
