Social Prescribing Partner; Portsmouth & Southsea Vacancy
Social prescribing is a way for local agencies to refer people to a link worker. Link workers give people time, focusing on ‘what matters to me’ and taking a holistic approach to people’s health and wellbeing. They connect people to community groups and statutory services for practical and emotional support.
Link workers also support existing community groups to be accessible and sustainable, and help people to start new groups, working collaboratively with all local partners.
Social prescribing works for a wide range of people, including people:
- with one or more long-term conditions
- who need support with their mental health
- who are lonely or isolated
- who have complex social needs which affect their wellbeing.
As a Primary Care Network, working between Trafalgar Medical Group Practice and Craneswater Group Practice, we also working in Partnership with the YOU to deliver this Social Prescribing role.
