Social Prescribing in Crawley: Key ingredients of the Link Worker Model (2018)
There are different ways of providing Social Prescribing services, and this film outlines the importance of the link worker, or community support coordinator role, who bridges primary care and the voluntary and community sector to refer patients to a menu of local services that will enhance their health and wellbeing. This film highlights the role of Tracy from Crawley CVS, who receives patient referrals from all the staff at Southgate Medical Group, and through a conversation she will find out their non-medical needs; from money worries and social isolation; to help them get them support at the right place.
