PRESCRIBE FITNESS

Socially prescribe fitness classes and pay teachers and therapists as pharmacists are paid for drugs.

CASPOTT's VISION

SOCIAL INTERVENTIONS AND COMPLIMENTARY THERAPY SHOULD HAVE PARITY OF ESTEEM WITH DRUGS THROUGH SOCIAL PRESCRIBING.

CASPOTT's MISSION

THERAPISTS PROVIDING SOCIAL INTERVENTIONS AND TALKING THERAPIES SHOULD BE PAID AS ALLIED HEALTH PROFESSIONALS.

WHAT CASPOTT IS ABOUT – MEDICATION TO MEDITATION TO HEAL

Helping the 14 million people in England (1 in 4) who are so mentally disturbed that they are self medicating on street or prescription drugs by

  • getting councillors on Health and Wellbeing Boards and officers on Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to spend more of their £80 bnpa health budget (£450 mpa in Brighton and Hove) on social prescribing of talking therapies, by
  • setting up a new social prescribing system for licencing complementary therapists, pyschotherapists and counsellors to treat patients with social interventions, in Community Care Centres near every GP surgery, and
  • be paid by the NHS on production of the used prescription form as pharmacists are paid for drugs.
