NHS England will fund 1,000 social prescribing workers to support practices

Comment

How about we all accept that the medical profession's paternalistic, dis-empowering attempts to portray every social ill as a "disease" has failed (looking at you Royal Colleges and second rate academics),and has nearly destroyed the NHS as a result. Put these link workers somewhere else ,with a citizens advice bureau as well , and leave us to get on with real medicine , not some Open University social anthropologist drivel.
