The Community Link Worker programme is funded by the Scottish
Government and runs in partnership with NHS Lothian, EVOC and
South West Edinburgh GP services to support the uptake of local
resources for health and well being.
Health All Round has three Community Link Workers who work with
Sighthill, Whinpark, Springwell and Murrayfield Medical Centres.
Clients are referred to Link Workers by their GP and are then
supported to access and attend Health All Round or other similar
services within Edinburgh to improve their health and wellbeing.
If you are referred to Health All Round by a Community Link
Worker we may, with your permission, continue to involve them
until you feel that you are receiving the support (or services)
that you need.
Link workers provide both telephone and face to face support,
they can accompany you to activities or simply give you the
information you need - whichever you prefer.
You can view the Community Link Worker Privacy statement at the
bottom of the home page.
