COVID-19 update

The Social Prescribing team are working remotely, but are still available to support practices and patients over the phone, email or video appointments.  For queries and referrals please contact us on 07305 492 193 or email healthyfutures@wolseley-trust.org.

During this time, we are also contacting patients identified by practices as most vulnerable to check on their welfare and ensure they have all they need while shielding or in lockdown e.g. access to food, prescriptions and mental health support.

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. 

What we offer

  • If a patient would like some support to improve their wellbeing, a referral can be made to Healthy Futures by their surgery.
  • The person referred will be invited to meet with a Link Worker.  They will listen them, help to identify what matters to them and what type of support they would like. 
  • The Link Worker will work alongside them to create a plan to help them reach goals and improve wellbeing. 
  • The Link Worker will support them to access local organisations and activities.

For more information about what we can help with and how to be referred to the service, please get in touch by phoning us on 07305 492193 or email healthyfutures@wolseley-trust.org.

What are Wellbeing Hubs?

12 Wellbeing Hubs will open across neighbourhoods over the next two years as part of an initiative designed to focus on prevention and make services easier to access in neighbourhoods.

Plymouth's Wellbeing Hubs have four main aims

  • To improve the health and wellbeing outcomes for local people
  • To reduce inequalities in health and wellbeing
  • To improve people's experience of care 
  • To improve the sustainability of the health and wellbeing system

What Are Wellbeing Hubs On The POD 600

We also work in partnership with a range of organisations in the city who can provide additional health and wellbeing support

The generic offer of every hub includes health advocacy, debt advice, mental health support, opportunities to volunteer, employment advice, signposting of local and citywide providers of health services. 

The hubs are a key part of the city's One System, One Aim vision which looks to transform care by taking a different approach.

  • From patients to people - the hubs will be designed to engage with people recognising they have strengths and assets and with support can achieve outcomes without being viewed as patients who need things doing to them
  • From care settings to places and communities - the hubs will be a place and community-based offer and will help to develop communities that care
  • From what's the matter with you to what matters to you - the plan is to focus on the assets of individuals and build on that to achieve the things they want to achieve
  • From illness management to wellness support - the focus is on prevention and wellbeing
