Abstract

There is a growing evidence about the role of social prescription on health and wellbeing [1-3]. Social prescription programme can act as a primary or secondary
intervention for a range of public health issues including obesity, mental health, parenting skills, life skills and address inequality in health and wealth.
Using the innovative “Gym for Free” [4] case study, this paper re visited the impact and outcome of this pilot public health policy initiative in promoting health and
redressing inequality in an inner- city deprived area in Birmingham.
In addition, there is not enough information available about the process and challenges of translating research findings into policy and practice. This paper will
describe the process, and outcomes of translating the findings of this research into implementation of “Be Active” a social prescription policy for the population in
Birmingham, UK
