The Salford Social Prescribing Hub is committed to help create a workforce for the 21st century.
Part of this involves educating health & social care professionals and social prescribers about each other’s roles, and making connections between them.
Another part, specific to social prescribers, is working to ensure that national policy frameworks and documents for Link Workers (e.g. competency frameworks, PCN DES, etc) are appropriate to support link workers in their needs, and sensitive to the complexity of the link worker role as it has developed organically over the years.
