HealthUnlocked is a social network for health. By finding others with similar health backgrounds people can take on day-to-day health concerns together. And because the communities are set up by leading health organisations people have access to credible support.

Almost seven in 10 patients on HealthUnlocked have never spoken to another patient with the same condition before using the platform. 91% say using it has been useful or life changing. 87% feel more confident when speaking to professionals.

Used by more than 40 million people each year, this new digital service uses artificial intelligence to provide individuals with a social prescription based on their condition and location.
