The Daventry Primary Care Network is a forward thinking newly formed Network comprising of the CQC rated outstanding practices of Abbey House Medical Practice and Danetre Medical Practice.
Based in Daventry, this is an exciting opportunity to develop the new role of Social Prescriber within this Network. Working as part of the general practice team you will help us deliver a comprehensive social care service that meets the needs of our patients. This will involve taking referrals, ensuring that you target groups and communities most in need and helping them to live a healthier, happier life. This will include patients who have been discharged from hospital, helping them to live independently according to their wishes, and connecting patients to voluntary groups and services for emotional, practical or physical support.
Ideally you will have an understanding of the voluntary sector and want to have a positive impact on the lives of our patients; this is an opportunity to really be involved with and develop a social prescribing scheme in the local area. This will be a rewarding role for the right person, who will be a positive and proactive team player, also able to work independently with confidence.
