Reading Well Books on Prescription helps people to understand and manage their health and wellbeing using helpful reading available from public libraries.
Building on the success of the three existing schemes, a book list has been developed for people with long term health conditions, and their relatives and carers. The titles provide information and advice to support living well with a long term condition. The list covers individual conditions such as diabetes and stroke, as well as common symptoms such as pain and fatigue.
To support delivery of the scheme, information leaflets are available:
- Leaflets: £33.75 per pack of 500 or £7.25 per 100
The leaflets provide the full book list of 28 titles, information about other resources available in libraries, useful links and signposting to other sources of support.
The following promotional resources are also available:
- A4 posters (portrait): £1.90 per pack of 10
- Pop-up banner: £115
- Sticker sheets (generic Reading Well): £0.75 per sheet (35 stickers per sheet)
P&P is based on total spend. VAT is added where applicable.
