Job summary
Innovative new role to develop ‘social prescribing’ in the local NHS. Based in one of the eight Primary Care Networks (PCNs) you will work in different GP practices to deliver their specific priorities. You will be part of a wider community based Borough team which offers information, signposting and short term support across eight localities in Haringey.

Social prescribing empowers people to take control of their health and wellbeing through referral to non-medical ‘link workers’ 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.

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.
