The National Links Worker Programme, making links between people and their communities through their GP Practice

A Scottish Government funded programme aiming to mitigate the impact of the social determinants of health in people that live in areas of high socioeconomic deprivation (top 15% SIMD).

The programme is gathering and sharing learning about the ‘links worker’ role and supporting others who are interested in this way of working. We share our learning via the publication of Record of Learning documents, shared learning events, and programme-to-programme support.
