Reading Well Books on Prescription helps individuals understand
and manage their health and wellbeing using self-help reading. The
books are endorsed by health professionals, as well as by people
living with the conditions covered and their relatives and carers.
The scheme is also supported by public libraries.
Our Trust Library Service has purchased books to support the
main core areas with prepared reading lists on Long Term
Conditions, Mental Health and Dementia.
