One of the first investments in the new Primary Care Networks is the introduction of Social Prescribing Link Workers into General Practice.

A Social Prescribing Link Worker works in partnership with people, actively listening to understand what matters to them from a holistic perspective (social and wider determinants of health), co-creating action plans and goals to meet their needs.

In Ainsdale and Birkdale PCN the link worker will be employed by the Brighter Living Partnership but will be integrated into the practice teams at our five member surgeries.

This is a new and exciting development in primary care and that is why we are hosting the information event on 28th November.

We want to inform patients about what the new role will bring to healthcare in our community and we want to hear what our patients have to say about the developments.

The event is bound to be popular so book your place now ( see poster for details)
