PCN Social Prescribers are a new addition to our successful social prescribing service and will support each one of the six local Primary Care Networks to assist local people to access appropriate services provided by voluntary and community organisations and other agencies.

Social prescribing helps to strengthen the links between general practice (GPs), community, voluntary and public services to improve residents’ health and wellbeing. We expand the options available in primary care by creating a ‘managed’ way for referrals of patients with social, emotional and/or practical needs to a variety of local non-clinical services in the community. These include leisure, social activities, education, welfare, housing and employment advice and support.

This is a joint venture by the Voluntary, Health and Statutory Sector.

Closing date: Midnight on Monday, 16th September 2019.

Interview date: Thursday 26th / Friday 27th September 2019.
