With the benefits of social prescribing now widely known, many healthcare professionals and organisations support the RACGP’s call for its formal inclusion in national long-term healthcare plans and standard primary care. The recently released primary health care 10-year plan 2022–32 also states that social prescribing will have a formal place in Australian general practice, recognising that it ‘seeks to address people’s needs in a holistic way’ and ‘aims to support individuals to take greater control of their own health’.

The new parkrun practice initiative aims to promote social prescribing by strengthening links between practices and their community.
