“Wellbeing Exeter is so beneficial, often the patients that keep returning to their GP just need social interaction”

— Dr Wong (Westbank Surgery)


Wellbeing Exeter is a partnership of public, voluntary and community sector organisations who have come together to explore better ways of supporting the 40% of patients who visit their GP with socially based rather than medical problems.

Our particular approach offers social prescribing, in combination with asset-based community development to provide firm foundations to enable individuals and communities to improve and promote their own health and wellbeing. Find out more here: Holistic Approach.
