    DescriptionGPs trial benefits of nature...Mark Morgan, chair of The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners’ Expert Committee – Quality Care, said the trial was a form of social prescribing, in which doctors or nurses link patients with a non-medical organisation, such as a men’s shed, community garden or park run. “There’s a huge amount to be gained in Australia through models of social prescribing and it’s a really important part of the toolkit of GPs,” he said.
