Social Prescription Navigator aka Life Changer Wanted

Social Prescribing offers an innovative approach to supporting individuals with their wider health, wellbeing and social issues.  Social Prescribers work alongside GP Surgeries providing connections to community services to help people reach their potential and address non-medical challenges.

Great communication skills, an interest or background in health, social care or the voluntary sector are all components of a Social Prescriber.  We are looking for a team player with the ability to manage your own workload, sometimes under pressure.   Experience of working with the general public is essential as is good IT skills.  You will be based in Grays but the role will require you to work at various GP locations across Thurrock.

Car drivers with the use of a vehicle are preferable. 

This post will require an enhanced DBS.
