The Community Link Worker programme in Inverclyde is funded by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. Community Link Workers are based within GP Practices and they work across the community, third sector and public sector to support people to live well through strengthening connections between community resources and primary care.
The Community Link Worker will provide a person-centred service that is responsive to the needs and interests of a GP practice population, who are often living in an area affected by socio-economic deprivation. They will support them to identify issues that affect their ability to live well. Taking a person-centred approach, the post holder will support individuals to help them identify personal outcomes and priorities that they would like to address, to overcome any barriers to addressing these and to link them to local and national support services and activities.
The Community Link Worker will support the existing GP practice team to become better equipped to match local and national support services to the needs of individuals attending for health care. They will also build relationships and processes between the GP practice and community resources, statutory organisations, other health services and voluntary organisations.
Closing date for applications is Wednesday 2nd February 2022 at 12 noon.
Interviews will take place on Wednesday 9th February 2022
