Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

Reading Well Books on Prescription

A scheme in which people with mental health issues are recommended books for self-help reading.

All the books are available in almost all English public libraries where they can be borrowed free of charge.

The books are all endorsed by health experts, as well as people with living with the conditions covered and their relatives and carers. You can be recommended a title by a health professional, or you can visit your local library and take a book out yourself.

There are currently four book lists available:

Reading Well Books on Prescription for common mental health conditions

Reading Well Books on Prescription for dementia

Reading Well for young people’s mental health

Reading Well for long term conditions
