In response to increasing popular demand for a Social Prescribing course for individual Social Prescribers and Link Workers, we are delighted to announce that our one-day SocialPrescriberPlus programme will be available regionally in September.

Who Should Attend?

The one day SocialPrescriberPlus™ course is ideal for:

  • Individuals wishing to train as Social Prescribers or Link Workers prior to applying for a role with an existing community Social Prescribing scheme, or for a Link Worker role in a Primary Care Network or GP Practice.
  • Members of  existing Social Prescribing schemes wishing to enhance their skills and learn the latest techniques for Active Listening, Motivational Interviewing and Health Coaching

What Will I Learn?

The SocialPrescriberPlus course is built around the HEE Competency Framework for Care Navigation at the Enhanced Level. It also incorporates the concepts and principles of Personalised Care (articulated in the NHS(E) Long Term Plan) as well as the very latest NHS(E) and National Association of Link Workers guidance and advice for Social Prescribing Link Workers.

The intensive full day SocialPrescriberPlus™ course provides delegates with all the knowledge and skills needed to enable them to take up a Social Prescriber or Link Worker role within a GP Practice, Primary Care Network or voluntary sector Social Prescribing scheme.

The course covers the essential Social Prescriber skills of Active Listening, Motivational Interviewing, Health Coaching and Relationship Building. It also introduces delegates to a range of referral, coaching, evaluation and personalised-care planning tools and templates – essential to ensuring the Social Prescriber can successfully master the day to day practicalities of working within a GP Practice or voluntary based Social Prescribing scheme.

What does the Course cost?

The cost of the one day course is £297 plus VAT and includes 12 months of 24/7 telephone support following the training, together with access to all the materials used and ongoing collaboration and networking tools – allowing you to keep up to date with the latest Social Prescribing developments and to build lasting personal and professional relationships, and networks with colleagues.
