We are very keen to hear what you think of this new Health & Wellbeing Portal. Please leave feedback to help us improve it further.
Reading Well Books on Prescription (BOP) helps people manage their own health and wellbeing through recommended self-help books, audio CDs and e-books. There are resources covering a range of topics including anxiety, depression, stress, chronic fatigue and chronic pain. There are also 25 books on dementia.
All BOP books are nationally approved by GPs & health professionals. Resources are available in over 20 Warwickshire libraries for anyone to browse and borrow free of charge (see BOP webpages for libraries with BOP collections). GPs and health professionals can also 'prescribe' titles in the collection.
Self-help books, audio CDs and e-books
The books are freely available to all Warwickshire residents. To borrow a book, a Warwickshire library card or BOP prescription is needed
BOP offers self help books and audio CDs to support people to manage their own well-being. The scheme can be accessed freely through the Warwickshire Library service. GPs and health professionals can also prescribe BOP books. BOP collections are also available to browse in Wellbeing for Warwickshire service bases.
