Minerva Social Presciber

Social Prescriber

I am Rachel Dawson, the new Social Prescribing Link Worker here at Minerva Primary Care Network.  

I welcome the opportunity to work with patients on any non-medical concerns that may be affecting their health & wellbeing.

My one-to-one appointments with patients will focus on what matters to individuals— identifying their strengths, and those areas they wish to change.   I will work short-term with patients, usually over a 3 month period, using motivational interviewing to co-create a Wellbeing Plan with personalised resources.

These resources draw upon community groups and services, and give patients the tools to make positive changes to increase wellbeing. I welcome referrals booked direct into triage phone calls daily, from which I book follow ups, and look forward to working as part of the team at Minerva to develop the wellbeing and resilience of patients. I love learning what motivates people to make changes and having been a primary teacher and mental health support worker locally, its great to now be working in Bath to help people take action to improve their wellbeing.
