Access Elemental Social Prescribing
Elemental is an award winning, cloud-based platform that enables localities and regions to provide more joined up care for population health management, using the social prescribing model of care.
Elemental was established by former community development workers in 2013 out of a growing frustration that not everyone in the community had equal opportunities to access health, education and welfare services.

Trusted across the UK by local authorities, health, VCSE, prison care and employment support. Our social prescribing solutions empower organisations to establish, scale and better measure the uptake of social prescribing, and manage referrals. All making a positive impact on health and well-being.
The Elemental team have been fantastic to work with and the user-friendly system has been so beneficial for the team and the service as a whole. The case management system allows us to work efficiently and effectively for our patients, as well as able to report on service utilisation and outcomes. This is essential to support our Primary Care Network as well as our community.
The main benefit for Elemental for me is recording case notes, appointments and what I’ve prescribed, to keep track of where I am with clients. I would see another benefit as being able to capture all the data.'
'An issue that Elemental has tackled is in seeing what services we are prescribing too the most (eg. bereavement) and maybe identifying where there are gaps in geographical areas.'
Elemental has provided us with a platform to present our findings with authority, encourage more partners to collaborate with us, allowed us as an organisation with a small number of staff to help provide a service to a large number of people and made it so easy for GPs and Clinicians to buy in to making a social prescription at a single click of a finger in consultation times.
Elemental is the Social Prescribing Platform we have been using for a couple of years now. It has really enhanced our service offer including wider spread, increased referral rates, better case recording and supervision tools. It is helping us to evidence our work and the value of the voluntary and community sector, and I’m really pleased that this support will be available to schemes across Greater Manchester.
