Job description

Role:  Community Link Worker (Social Prescribing)

Location: Amersham, Prestwood, Hughenden Valley, Great Missenden

Mid-Chiltern PCN (Rectory Meadow Surgery, Amersham Health Centre, John Hampden Surgery, Hughenden Valley Surgery, The Practice Prospect House)

Salary: £22,500 per annum

Hours: 37.5 per week (9am – 5pm)

Contract: Permanent

Introduction

Bucks Charitable Alliance (BCA) is a consortium of local charities, with an excellent track record of delivering high quality services in the communities they serve. Community Link Workers will be managed by staff with experience of social prescribing and have access to a range of training and personal development opportunities.

The Social Prescribing service will be delivered by Community Link Workers working from GP surgeries in Primary Care Network (PCN) areas. The Community Link Worker will be directly employed by Buckinghamshire Mind.

Purpose of the role

Social prescribing empowers people to take control of their health and wellbeing through GP referral to non-medical Community Link Workers (CLW’s) based in GP surgeries who give time, focus on ‘what matters to me’ and take a holistic approach, connecting people to community groups and statutory services for practical and emotional support. Community Link Workers work collaboratively with all local partners.

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.
