Social prescribing is becoming increasingly prominent in health and social care policy and practice as it supports a range of strategic agendas including improving population health and independence, illness prevention and demand management, patient-centred care, integration of health and social care, and loneliness prevention. Here we share insights into the key ingredients necessary for successful social prescribing services based on our review of the literature. The review also explores potential barriers to the widespread adoption of social prescribing services.
