Books on prescription - Reading Well Books on prescription - Reading Well

Reading Well is the national books on prescription service. Wiltshire's libraries are delighted to take part in this scheme, and we already have several years of experience delivering our own scheme with health colleagues in Wiltshire.
Doctors can write a prescription for one of the titles on this list as part of a GP visit. The titles are also available for loan in many libraries - the titles, and the libraries that hold them, are below.
