Tiff | Social Prescribing Link Worker Ashton PCN
What is your role:
I am a Social Prescribing Link Worker for the Ashton Primary Care Network (PCN). I work mainly with referrals that come directly from GPs and other medical professionals, as well as being based in GP surgeries for part of my week, working directly with patients to triage their social prescribing needs.
What do you most enjoy about being a Social Prescribing PCN Link Worker?:
Every day is different, one day I’ll be working through my admin and another day I’ll be out in the community, talking to the public about Social Prescribing. Every day I get to speak to lots of lovely people and find out what goals they want to work on, to improve their health and wellbeing. I enjoy being able to signpost people to activities, groups and services, then seeing what a difference those things make to their lives
Describe Social Prescribing in three words:
Thriving, diverse, friendly.
