Social Prescribing Lead
Hello, my name is Hannah and I am the Social Prescribing Link Worker for the Dover Town PCN.
My role is to give people time, focusing on ‘what matters to me’ by taking a holistic approach to people’s health and wellbeing. As part of my role I help to connect people to a range of community groups and statutory services for practical and emotional support and work with local partners to ensure that gaps in provision are identified and work with them to bridge the gaps.
I spend time building relationships with my patients and provide tailored support both over the phone and face to face. I work as part of a multidisciplinary team, which helps to put the patient in the centre and ensure shared decision making is a fundamental element of our patient care.
I have over 7 years of experience in Health and Wellbeing with a Level 7 Advanced Professional Diploma in Health and Wellbeing Physiology and I strongly believe in the benefits that lifestyle interventions can have on health inequalities. I am passionate about making a real difference to the lives of individuals and the wider community and I consider myself to be approachable and an active listener.
When I am not helping my patients, I like to spend time outdoors going for walks in the countryside and by the sea, as well as spending time with family and friends.
