Sarah McGuinness, Social Prescribing Link Worker

Sarah McGuinness

Social Prescribing Link Worker

My role is to help people aged 65 and over with social issues, including social isolation, loneliness and frailty.

Being community-based means I can visit people at home, and forge links with community groups.

I take the time to get to know people and what matters to them. By increasing their confidence and linking them to community services and groups, people can be empowered to take control of their health and wellbeing.

Over my 15 years in the NHS, I’ve worked in physiotherapy and mental health services, and with adults with learning disabilities. I started working with JHP in December 2019.
