Closing date: 28th May
The social prescribing link worker will be employed by Pennine GP Alliance Ltd with direction from the Primary Care Networks (PCN) and based within the PCN practices.
They will play an important role in empowering people to take control of their health and wellbeing, enhancing self-management, active care navigation by receptionists and a greater understanding within practice and by patients of alternative options and support outside of practice available to them.
The roles will involve managing a case load that has both been proactively identified by the social prescribing link worker following interrogation of practice data and/or referred to the social prescribing link workers from the PCNs they work within.
The role builds upon and adds value to the existing social prescribing and navigational services available within Calderdale, with whom the social prescribing link workers will work collaboratively. It is therefore important that they can quickly build effective working relationships with such colleagues and third sector organisations and in particular with PCN Clinical Directors, the PCN Boards, Receptionists and Clinical Staff within PCN practices and Pennine GP Alliance Ltd Team.
