Lauren Woods

Social Prescribing Link Worker

I work alongside care home patients, their family and carers to create personalised care and support plans. I spend time discussing what is important to the patient and ensure that their care is coordinated in a way that reflects their care plan.

Before coming to Jesmond in November 2020, I worked within a supportive environment with a range of different individuals supporting with housing, homelessness, substance misuse, mental health, and general advice/wellbeing.

I work fulltime between JHP, and the three other practices in the Jesmond Lower Gosforth PCN.
