Social Prescribing Link Worker
I’m the social prescribing link worker at Meridian, have a degree in health studies and a background working in mental health, supporting young people and carers. I bring hands-on experience helping those with emotional and social problems. My role takes a personalised approach, looking at where strengths lie, and what gives a sense of purpose to someone’s life. I look at ways to re-connect patients with community-based activities that could make a difference, help build confidence, whilst alleviating some of the frustration and anxiety that might be experienced while waiting for surgery.
