Personalised Care Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS)
People are increasingly affected by living with complex, long term health conditions, growing unmet health needs and the effects of other social determinants of health. The NHS is expanding the Primary Care workforce to help tackle these issues, with the aim to reduce the health inequalities people experience.
Primary Care Networks are supported by the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS) which has been established to help fund new roles. We focus on the Personalised Care roles which include Social Prescribing Link Workers, Health and Wellbeing Coaches and Care Coordinators.
These roles are integral to delivering the NHS Long Term plan ambition for personalised care to reach 2.5 million people by 2023/24, as well as shift care to a more holistic biopsychosocial model.
