Social Prescribing Tackling Loneliness and Isolation

Press/Media: Expert Comment


Innovative trials and a high-level discussion forum have put social referrals high on the primary care agenda.

Associate Professor Mark Morgan, Chair of the RACGP Expert Committee – Quality Care, said the roundtable will give social prescribing a boost.
‘We will be developing recommendations that we will put to Government and stakeholders to give social prescribing a real kick-start in Australia,’ he said.

In recent months, the RACGP has been exploring social prescribing possibilities with social running organisation parkrun, coming after the RCGP in the UK signed a formal partnership with parkrun to allow GPs to ‘prescribe’ the group.
