Social Prescribers- Child Mental Health Medway
Up to £26,000
Could you be a Social Prescribing star?
Due to the success and expansion of the service, we are looking for people to join our Social Prescribing team, helping patients to access support that will help them lead more independent, resilient and healthier lives.
Working alongside GP practices, Social Prescribers help patients and families connect with health and community services which will make a real difference to their emotional and physical wellbeing.
The service provides person-centred support, with Social Prescribers managing new referrals and a caseload, or providing admin and navigation advice and information. A key aim is to help patients engage more fully in their own health and wellbeing, and some Social Prescribers specialise in working with children or adults, and mental health.
It’s essential that you have an understanding of how to prioritise need, and are able to recognise when to refer on to specialist services, being confident to communicate at all levels across health and social care sectors.
