Invitation to the WSSSPR Social Prescribing Evaluation Forum Session 2 - Developing a monitoring framework for social prescribing

At the Wales School for Social Prescribing Research we will be running three social prescribing evaluation forums per year. The aim of the forums is to provide a place for discussion and resources to support social prescribers and community groups in conducting evaluation and monitoring.

We are inviting members of the Wales Social Prescribing Research Network and the three Welsh Communities of Practice to participate, initially spaces will be limited to 25 people per session and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. We would suggest that 1-2 people per organisation sign up to each session. There will be a waiting list in the event that the forum is oversubscribed.

We will host these forums on Microsoft Teams and joining instructions will be sent to attendees nearer the time.

The dates for the upcoming meetings are:

  • Wednesday 20th January 2021
  • Tuesday 16th March 2021 

In addition to the session above we will also be holding three pre-bookable clinic sessions to provide support on specific evaluations. These can be taken up by an individual, or by members from a service/organisation as a group.  If you would be interested in booking one of these slots, please complete and return the attached application form to

16th UK Society for Behavioural Medicine Annual Scientific Meeting 

Dates: Wednesday 13th - Thursday 14th January 2021

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the decision to postpone the 16th International Congress of Behavioural Medicine (now taking place as a virtual meeting 7-11 June 2021) UKSBM has decided to host a virtual Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) as we are keen not to miss out on our flagship event.

The ASM will take place over two half days (Wednesday and Thursday 13 and 14 January 2021), and will include the content you would expect to see at an annual face-to-face meeting (keynote speakers; parallel oral and poster presentation sessions; a prize winning presentation session; early and mid-career events; Special Interest Groups and the Society’s Annual General Meeting). Further details will posted on the website as soon as they are confirmed: we have made every effort to keep costs as low as possible to ensure maximum value for attendees.

We would like to invite all behavioural and public health researchers, clinical practitioners, epidemiologists, health and clinical psychologists, medical sociologists, health economists, nurses, pharmacists and all other colleagues interested in the field of behavioural medicine to participate in this two-day meeting. This year there is no conference theme, so we are running our usual open call for contributions from all areas of behavioural medicine and would welcome the submission of abstracts that reflect the broad focus of contemporary research in Behavioural Medicine.

We look forward to receiving your abstract submissions and hope to be able to meet in person again in 2022.
