Abstract

The Wigan Community Link Worker (CLW) service has been jointly commissioned by Wigan Borough Clinical Commissioning Group and Wigan Council with the aim of improving the health and wellbeing of local people through better connections to appropriate sources of support in the community. It was set up as a pilot in 2015, run by City Health Care Partnership (CHCP). It started off with 11 practices and grew to cover the whole Borough (63 practices) from November 2015. In March 2016, funding for the service was extended for a year to March 2017.
