This article discusses ‘social prescribing’ as a non-medical approach for nurse prescribers that can promote health and wellbeing within a personalised care context as part of the NHS Long Term Plan (DHS 2019). The concept of social prescribing and its origins will be described alongside common interventions and services. This article concludes with an exploration of how social prescribing can be used to compliment nurse prescribing to support personalised care.
