Healthy Start moving to a paperless, digital scheme

There are lots of families in Somerset that utilise the Healthy Start scheme to access free vitamins during pregnancy and healthy foods for their families; collaborative efforts across Somerset aim to:

  • Support families to make the change to the pre-paid card
  • Increase uptake of those eligible

The NHS have launched a digital scheme that offers a prepaid card to those applying for Healthy Start instead of paper vouchers. This card will be automatically topped up every 4 weeks.Check out this animation – how to apply online https://youtu.be/LjnkCzKClioHead to the NHS Healthy Start website for more information
