Working with Allied Health Professionals to enable and support social prescribing

This webinar will explore how Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) can enable and support social prescribing. It will cover the roles of different AHPs working in a variety of settings and highlight the many ways they can support Social Prescribing Link Workers (SPLWs) in practice.

The webinar will be opened by Linda Hindle, Lead Allied Health Professional for Public Health England to introduce the Social Prescribing Framework. The framework presents a common vision for social prescribing where AHPs play an important role in ensuring that everyone has access to social prescribing.


SPLWs, AHPs, PCN teams, clinicians, commissioners, ICBs and wider health and care colleagues working to develop multidisciplinary teams and the integration of care. The webinar may also be suitable for individuals working in aligned services, such as secondary and community health services or other services where there is an opportunity to align and improve existing pathways.


To provide opportunities to share learning, develop new knowledge and build relationships to enhance patient care. Consider core principles of joint working individual functions and areas of practice and how the roles add value to each other.

The webinar will explore how a multidisciplinary approach can support working across the disciplines through appropriately utilising knowledge, skills and best practice to improved collective understanding and enhance personalised care delivery. Joint working can also help to address some of the implementation barriers experienced by SPLWs including managing boundaries of practice, supervision and career development.

Learn more about opportunities to reduce health inequalities in access and outcomes and opportunities to integrate services where this might reduce health inequalities.
