Job Description :

Macclesfield Primary Care Network brings together the six practices in Waters Green Medical Centre to improve and develop high quality services that are efficient, convenient, reliable and safe for the population of Macclesfield.

We are looking to recruit to the post of Social Prescribing Link Worker to work within our primary care network multi-disciplinary healthcare team, providing 1:1 personalised support to people who are referred to them by health professionals in the first instance.

This post empowers people to take control of their health and wellbeing by giving time to focus on ‘what matters to me’. The Social Prescribing Link Worker will build trusting relationships with people, create a shared personalised care and support plan and connect them to local, diverse and culturally appropriate community groups, Voluntary and Community Sector organisations and services.

This role helps people to work on their wider health and wellbeing, specifically addressing health access and outcomes and wider determinants of their health. This approach particularly helps people with long term conditions (including support for mental health), people who are lonely or isolated, or who have complex social needs which affect their wellbeing.

You must be a good listener, have time for people and be committed to supporting local communities to care for each other. You should have experience of working positively with people facing complex social and emotional challenges. You will have great interpersonal skills in supporting people, community groups and local organisations.

The post holder will work with a diverse range of people from different cultural and social backgrounds. The ability to work confidently and effectively in a diverse and sometimes challenging environment is essential.
