Fit for Purpose Conference 2010 – This report is the evaluation of the Fit for Purpose 2010 Conference, which took place at Perth Concert Hall in April.The theme for the conference was Social Prescribing. Social Prescribing links patients with non-medical sources of support within the community. There is growing evidence that psychosocial interventions should form a central component of treatment options for common health problems. The principles of social prescribing are relevant to and supported by Scottish Government policy on arts and culture, employment, lifelong learning, employability, volunteering, environment and conservation, health, sport and physical activity.
The conference was aimed at Chief Executive Officers and Development staff working in Community Health Partnerships, Local Authorities and the Third Sector.
