Health Hubs: A community-centred prevention initiative to address health inequalities

NHS Providers LOGO

What are health hubs?

Health hubs are delivered in collaboration with system partners, the voluntary, community, faith, and social enterprise sector (VCFSE), and the community to transform everyday spaces into healthcare services. Various forms of health hubs have been established by trusts across the country to improve access to healthcare and provide wellbeing support, lifestyle advice, and education. Through this approach, these hubs present an opportunity to prevent ill-health and the worsening of existing health conditions, reducing demand on primary and secondary healthcare services, and addressing health inequalities.
