Looking for something new?

This is an amazing opportunity to join a new team working in the Faversham area as part of our wider Social Prescribing service, helping patients to access support that will help them lead more independent, resilient, safer and healthier lives. 

Working alongside GP practices, Social Prescribers help patients and families connect with health and community services which will make a real difference to their emotional and physical wellbeing.  

The service provides personalised support, with Social Prescribers managing new referrals and a caseload. A key aim is to help patients engage more fully in their own health and wellbeing, and some Social Prescribers specialise in working with children or adults, and specific mental or physical health conditions.   

It’s essential that you have an understanding of how to prioritise need, and are able to recognise when to refer on to specialist services, being confident to communicate at all levels across health and social care sectors.
