Sefton CVS are seeking expressions of interest from Sefton based VCF sector organisations to contribute to the delivery of a social prescribing service within  Primary Care Networks, working in partnership collaboration with the Living Well Sefton model.

Primary Care Networks are an integral part of the recently published NHS Long-Term Plan which introduces this new role of ‘social prescribing link workers’ into their multi-disciplinary teams as part of the expansion to the primary care workforce.  This is an opportunity to work collaboratively with  developing PCNs to establish this new role and shape the development of a model of excellence in social prescribing in Sefton.

Successful organisations will employ and manage a ‘Social Prescribing Link Worker’ who will form part of a multidisciplinary team focused on improving personalised care for patients within a specified Primary Care Network. Link Workers from all areas will function as one team and work closely with all Living Well Sefton partners.
