SocialPrescriberPlus – essential training for social prescribing link workers, care coordinators and health coaches.

The SocialPrescriberPlus Programme is online training for primary care networks (PCNs) and practice social prescribing teams. With the additional roles reimbursement scheme now supporting social prescribing link workers, care coordinators and health coaches, practically focused training is essential for these posts to provide effective and efficient support to practices. This online training delivered via the Zoom meeting platform, runs across three half-day modules, with the first two modules taking place on successive days and the third module taking place after the social prescriber has gained experience in the role.

Module 1 – The role of the social prescriber in the PCN and practice

This module focuses on the soft skills needed by the link worker to engage effectively with the key stakeholders in the PCN and the practice, with their patients, their colleagues and with the community groups and services to whom they will be referring their patients. The module also covers telephone consultation techniques, building trust and rapport, and personalised health and care planning.
