Our Social Prescribing Team

Social Prescribing Link Workers (SPLWs) play a key role in delivering social prescribing by giving people time, focusing on ‘what matters to me’ and taking a holistic approach to people’s health and wellbeing in order to connect them to appropriate community groups and services. SPLWs play a pivotal role by developing trusting relationships and providing personalised support. As a result, their work strengthens community resilience; reduces health inequalities by addressing the wider determinants of health, such as debt, poor housing and physical inactivity; and increases people’s active involvement with their local communities. SPLWs work  collaboratively with all local partners, providing a bridge between the health sector and the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector.

The Guildford and Waverley Social Prescribing Service is responsible for service provision in four Primary Care Networks (PCNs). These are:

  • East Guildford PCN

  • North and Central Guildford PCN

  • East Waverley PCN

We have a diverse team of link workers across our PCNs, each with specific areas of expertise and work experience that combine to bring a well-balanced and dynamic team to serve our local community.

The service is jointly managed by Ben Standring (Operations Manager; Social Prescribing Lead for External Organisations) and Jonathan Knight, who is responsible for the day-to-day running of the Social Prescribing team (Social Prescribing Team Leader; Social Prescribing Internal Lead).
