Social Prescribing


What is Social Prescribing?

Social prescribing helps you explore and access activities and services that are available locally to support you to improve your health and wellbeing.

Social Prescribing Service


Social Prescribing Service Overview

Healthy Futures works with 6 Primary Care Networks in Plymouth covering 33 GP surgeries.

We work with patients who would like support to access activities and services in the community to improve their health and wellbeing.

We are funded by Primary Care Networks, Plymouth City Council and the Department of Health.

What we offer

  • If a person would like some support to improve their wellbeing, a referral can be made to Healthy Futures by their surgery or they can self-refer by contacting us themselves.
  • The person referred will be contacted by a Link Worker.  They will listen them, help to identify what matters to them and what their goals are to improve their wellbeing.
  • The Link Worker will work alongside them over a number of appointments to provide ongoing support and encouragement to reach goals and improve wellbeing.
  • The Link Worker will support them to access local organisations and activities.

History and Development

The Wolseley Trust has been delivering Social Prescribing in our area of benefit in partnership with local surgeries and community organisations since 2010.  This service was funded by the Office for the Director of Public Health and the Wolseley Trust to meet the social needs of local people.

Since 2017 the service has grown through successful funding applications to Department of Health and Plymouth City Council.  In 2019, the team secured contracts with 6 Primary Care Networks in Plymouth, providing dedicated social prescribers in 33 GP surgeries citywide.
