Charlotte Osborn-Forde is the CEO of the National Academy for Social Prescribing (NASP), a government funded body to develop social prescribing locally, nationally and internationally with partners – especially NHSE. She works closely with clinical and community-based colleagues to develop strategic links between the healthcare sector and providers in culture, heritage, physical activity, nature and voluntary and community services – to improve health and wellbeing. Charlotte leads an evidence team of academics and researchers building the case for better integration and investment into social prescribing, at national and global level. Prior to leading NASP, Charlotte was the CEO of Involve Kent, and worked with the Department of Health to pilot social prescribing in primary care, initiating a service which grew to 102 GP practices offering social prescribing alongside medical care to more than 5000 patients. She also lectures in social prescribing at the Kent and Medway Medical School.
