More about the Venn Team

Health & Wellbeing Coaches

Health and wellbeing coaches support people to increase their ability to self-manage, motivation levels and commitment to change their lifestyle. They are experts in behaviour change and focus on improving health related outcomes by working with people to set personalised goals and change their behaviours. They work with people with physical and/or mental health conditions and those at risk of developing them.

Health and wellbeing coaches can be an effective intervention for people experiencing a range of long-term conditions, including respiratory, cardiovascular (including type 2 diabetes and hypertension), and stress/low mood. They can also support people with weight management, diet and increasing activity levels.

Care Coordinator

Care co-ordinators help to co-ordinate and navigate care across the health and care system, helping people make the right connections, with the right teams at the right time.

 They can support people to become more active in their own health and care and are skilled in assessing people’s changing needs. Care co-ordinators are effective in bringing together multidisciplinary teams to support people’s complex health and care needs.

Social Prescriber Link Worker 

Social prescribing link workers connect people to community-based support, including activities and services that meet practical, social, and emotional needs that affect their health and wellbeing. This includes connecting people to statutory services for example housing, financial and welfare advice.

Social prescribing works particularly well for people with low level mental health needs, who feel lonely or isolated, with long term conditions and complex social needs.

Social prescribing link workers work collaboratively across the health and care system, targeting populations with greatest need and risk of health inequalities. They collaborate with partners to identify gaps in provision and support community offers to be accessible and sustainable.

Physician Associates

Physician associates (PAs) are healthcare professionals with a generalist healthcare education who work alongside doctors and surgeons providing medical care as an integral part of the multidisciplinary team. PAs work under the supervision of a named senior doctor (such as a named General Medical Council registered consultant or general practitioner) but can work autonomously with appropriate support.

Advanced Clinical Practitioner

Advanced clinical practitioners (ACPs) come from a range of professional backgrounds including nursing, pharmacy, and allied health professions. They are healthcare professionals educated to Master’s level who have developed the skills and knowledge to allow them to take on expanded roles and scope of practice caring for patients. ACPs practice with autonomy and expertise to ensure the best possible outcomes for patients across a variety of settings.

GP Assistant

As part of the wider team in general practice, General Practice Assistants provide a support role, carrying out administrative tasks, combined in some areas with basic clinical duties. They can help to free up GPs time and contribute to the smooth running of appointments, improving patients experience in the surgery.


A Primary Care Network (PCN) pharmacist works alongside a multidisciplinary diverse team of health care professionals in general practice and within the primary care network, providing primary support for prescription and medication queries.

Pharmacy Technician

Pharmacy Technicians play an important role, complimenting clinical pharmacists, community pharmacists and other members of the PCN multi-disciplinary team. While Pharmacy Technicians do not prescribe nor make clinical decisions, they do work under supervision to ensure the effective and efficient use of medicines. In the PCN, their core responsibilities cover clinical, technical, and administrative roles.

Nursing Associate

A nursing associate is a member of the nursing team in England that helps bridge the gap between health and care assistants and registered nurses.

Nursing associates work with people of all ages, in a variety of settings in health and social care. The role contributes to the core work of nursing, freeing up registered nurses to focus on more complex clinical care.

It's a stand-alone role that also provides a progression route into graduate level nursing.

First Contact Physiotherapist

First contact practitioner physiotherapists (FCPs) are advanced physiotherapists working within GP practices. FCPs have extensive skills in the assessment, diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions. Such as joint pain and stiffness, osteoarthritis, sciatica and muscular pain.

Home Visiting Team

Our Home Visiting Team consists of Advanced Care Nurse Practitioners. The team support all our practices within the PCN by conducting home visits for housebound patients who are too unwell to leave their home or patients within a care home. The team are supported by GPs within the practices.
