Social prescribing providers invited to take part in PhD research

Plymouth University postgraduate research student Charlotte Featherstone is seeking social prescribing providers to take part in online focus groups on provision of social prescribing for adults on the autism spectrum. This is a vital area of research as autistic adults experience significant health disparities and barriers accessing healthcare, leading to early mortality. The research will explore the potential for accessible social prescribing to mitigate these issues.
