Community Link Workers

What is a Community Link Worker?

Community Link Workers (formerly known as Social Prescribers) offer non-clinical support to patients to empower them to take greater control over their health and wellbeing by setting goals, and addressing problems and issues that the individual brings to the conversation. This gives the individual the opportunity to talk about what really matters to them.

The Community Link Workers role is to empower the individual to access relevant resources or services within the community.
