Social Prescribing in Hounslow
Social Prescribing Link Workers are new roles being created in Hounslow as part of a new NHS England national programme. These roles will bring social prescribing into GP Practices in Hounslow during 2019.
There will be a new Social Prescribing Link Worker within all 5 of Hounslow's Primary Care Networks (PCN).
Theses workers will support people through assessment and support planning and by providing connections to community services that can support residents to address their wider health and care needs and empower them to ‘Self Manage’.
