Getting started

with health partnerships

August 2021


We support local areas to build partnerships where no meaningful cross-sector relationships exist.


A local NHS system was created in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire – a large new geography. We brought cross-sector partners together with the broad aim of better understanding the needs of their population. This was a particular challenge due to historic and increasing competition for contracts amongst community organisations. Through a series of workshops, we re-set relationships and established a Social Prescribing Expert Group. This enabled more effective communication between the voluntary sector and the NHS, culminating in the group working together to promote and deliver a consistent social prescribing offer across the new region.
