Location: Haringey, London.

Contract: Part-time, 22.5 hours per week.

Period: 12 months, with possibility of extension.

We do this through community engagement, individual user engagement and community intervention, collecting the combined voices of citizens, gathering evidence and ultimately taking action to bring about positive change, now and in the future.

The Role

NHS England (NHSE) has made funding available to Primary Care Networks (PCNs) since 1st July 2019 to provide a social prescribing service to patients who will benefit from a more holistic approach to their wellbeing. The NHSE Guidance states that ‘social prescribing and community-based support is part of the NHS Long-Term Plan’s commitment to make personalised care business as usual across the health and care system’.

Social prescribing empowers people to take control of their health and wellbeing through referral to a non-medical Social Prescribing Link Worker (SPLW), who gives time, focuses on ‘what matters to me’ and takes a holistic approach, connecting people to community groups and statutory services for practical and emotional support. Social prescribing can help to strengthen community resilience and personal resilience and reduces health inequalities by addressing the wider determinants of health, such as debt, poor housing and physical inactivity, by increasing people’s active involvement with their local communities. It particularly works for people with long-term conditions (including support for mental health), for people who are lonely or isolated, or have complex social needs which affect their wellbeing.

The SPLW is at the centre of the social prescribing process, working with GP Practices in a Primary Care Network, connecting patients who are referred to a range of activities and services in the local area depending on their needs, interests and capacity for engagement. This is a complex role as the SPLW will need to have good interpersonal skills to engage with the patient and have a comprehensive knowledge of the services and activities available in the local area. Based in one of the eight Primary Care Networks (PCN) you will work in different GP practices across that Network to deliver their specific priorities. You will join a team of Social Prescribing Link Workers working in Haringey PCNs and be part of a wider community-based Borough team which offers information, signposting and short-term support across the eight localities in Haringey.
