Support for recruitment of additional social prescribing link workers

Social prescribing link workers (SPLWs) have been an important part of the response to COVID-19, helping to support people with mental health and social issues and contributing to reducing pressure on general practice.

A time-limited support offer is being funded to cover recruitment and induction costs for additional Network DES funded SPLWs.  This offer will be available only until 31 January 2021. All primary care networks (PCNs) which are interested in expanding the number of DES funded SPLWs are encouraged to submit an Expression of Interest no later than 24 August 2020. For enquiries relating to this offer please contact: england.linkworkerrecruitment@nhs.net.
