The Role:

Due to the expansion of  Social Prescribing Service, they have some exciting opportunities for new Social Prescribers to join the amazing and dedicated team in various locations across West Sussex. You will be a key member of the Primary Care Network (PCN) multi-disciplinary team and will provide support to patients, empowering them to take control of their health and well-being.

  • You will be connecting patients to community groups and services for practical and emotional support.

Although AUKWSBH supports people over the age of 50, the Social Prescribers support all patients from the age of 18.

  • You will be helping patients set goals, achieve personal growth, and behaviour modification as well as building resilience and social connectedness, reduce inequalities and help patients to have greater control over their health and lives.

  • A driving licence is required for the role as it may involve some travel.
  • Should you be successful, you will be subject to a variety of checks, including DBS and references.
