Publication name Evaluation of the Links Worker Programme in ‘Deep End’ general practices in Glasgow
Date: 24 May 2016
Summary: The Links Worker Programme is a Scottish Government funded programme, being piloted in deprived areas of Glasgow, which aims to support primary care patients with complex needs to mitigate the impact of the social determinants of health. The University of Glasgow is conducting a three-year, mixed method, independent evaluation of the Links Worker Programme, commissioned by NHS Health Scotland. The interim report outlining progress with the main evaluation is available at the second link below.
As a sub-project to the main evaluation, NHS Health Scotland commissioned further research to explore the Links Worker Programme from the perspective of community organisations that receive referrals from Community Links Practitioners. The Community Links evaluation report below presents the findings of the sub-project evaluation. It explores issues relevant to developing intersectoral working between primary care and local community resources to achieve public health goals, and to gaining a better understanding of the view of those working in community organisations about the ‘Links Worker’ model of social prescribing. Lessons that are important for the future development of the Glasgow Links Worker Programme are provided.
