Meet Claire Gardiner, Community Link Worker

 

Based in two GP practices in the North East of Edinburgh my time is split between them providing a holistic service to patients. Referrals come directly from practice staff and I offer an appointment to meet and connect with the person. Together we make an assessment of their needs and discuss a plan. My role includes providing help to access information, support, specialist services or activities in the community which will meet their needs and improve their health and wellbeing.
