Regional Primary Care Network (PCN) Advisors for Social Prescribing & Health Inequalities 

These roles support PCNS to embed the three personalised care roles (Social Prescribing Link Workers, Health & Wellbeing Coaches and Care Coordinators) to effectively tackle health inequalities and support primary care. They also facilitate a community of practice across London, made up of a network of people who employ or manage the three roles in their work.
