UK Doctors Will Encourage Patients To Engage More With Arts & Culture To Improve Their Physical And Mental Health

Thanks to some new government scheme, general practitioners in the United Kingdom will advise patients to take fewer pills and syrups and, instead, engage with more art and culture.


Called “social prescribing,” this alternative approach aims to highlight the benefits of art-inspired, treatment for a range of ailments and afflictions. “It’s scientifically proven,” health secretary Matt Hancock said, “[that] access to the arts and social activities improves people’s mental and physical health. It makes us happier and healthier.”


Along with hands-on activities like art classes and music lessons, the proposal will send people to theaters, museums, and other cultural hubs which foster “personal creativity.” The prescription is personalized, so the dosage, as well as destination, depend entirely on the person’s interests.


While the social prescribing plan is still in its early stages, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media, and Sports predicts it will be on its feet by 2023.
