That this House recognises NHS Lanarkshire and South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture for piloting an innovating new approach to treating mental health patients; understands the burden that the NHS faces with growing numbers of patients and limited resources; therefore praises NHS trusts that use alternative treatments such as social prescribing; commends the collaborative approach this treatment requires with other organisations; further commends the results of the pilot with early statistics showing that 75 per cent of patients referred the Physical Activity Prescription are engaging with the opportunity and reporting increased wellbeing; and thanks all the staff and organisations involved for their dedication and creativity in the treatment of mental health conditions in South Lanarkshire.
