“Patients circumstances are really improving, the Connectors are having a great impact”

— GP (Pinhoe 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, for young people and adults 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.
