Community Link Workers

All 13 of Inverclyde's GP practices have a designated Community Link Worker. They support patients with non-medical issues which are affecting their overall physical and emotional wellbeing. This is known as social prescribing. Community Link Workers link patients to support for a variety of issues including financial worries, parenting support, housing issues, poor mental and emotional wellbeing, drug and alcohol issues and physical wellbeing. Support can take place in the GP practice, community venues, other agencies, by telephone or other virtual platforms and also home visits (when no other option is available). Most referrals come directly through the GP and Practice team. Patients can also refer themselves by contacting the reception team at their GP Practice. Any external organisation/third party wishing more information about the CLW team can contact CVS Inverclyde:
