Community Link Worker

The Community Link Worker programme is funded by the Scottish Government and runs in partnership with NHS Lothian to support people to live well through strengthening connections between community resources such as Health All Round and GP services.

Health All Round has two Community Link Workers who work with Sighthill and Whinpark Medical Centres. Clients are referred to Link Workers by their GP and are then supported to attend Health All Round or other similar services throughout 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 will provide telephone support only during periods of lockdown.

You can view the Community Link Worker Privacy statement at the bottom of the home page.

Polish Link Worker Service

Health All Round recognizes how difficult it can be to settle in to a new country and understand the complexities of unfamiliar health and social care systems. Our Polish Link worker provides one to one support to Polish people who are struggling to access the services they need to lead a healthy, fulfilling life.

The Polish Link Worker can also assist Health & Social Care Professionals in their communications with Polish clients / patients and promote uptake & engagement of services by Polish people in order to support their needs or the needs of people they care for.

Conversation Cafes

Small informal groups supporting people to improve their spoken English. These groups are tailored to the needs of people who are unable to engage in mainstream English Language classes. Run by Zoom during periods of lockdown.

Befriending service

Our Polish Link Worker service is also supported by a small group of Polish befrienders who can help Polish people to access local services and provide one to one support to improve spoken English.
