What are the benefits of nature-based prescribing? Our latest natural capital report provides new evidence that moving to more nature-based prescriptions could save the NHS money, as well as improving water quality thanks to the smaller quantities of drugs entering our water systems. We carried out a unique study for the Environment Agency where we measured the impact on mental health of spending time in nature: we found that not only does mental health improve, but that the benefits for local services, water companies and the NHS were also significant.
We were privileged to work with the Bristol Avon Rivers Trust, the Bristol Avon Catchment Partnership and South Gloucestershire Council. Read about the findings of the report and download a copy for free from our website below.
