Adrianna Jones - Introducing Myself

Hi my name is Adrianna Jones and I joined the Merton Voluntary Service Council team in July as the new Social Prescribing Project Coordinator.  I am based at five local GP practices in East Merton.  After a successful pilot, MVSC fortunately recruited me to their team!
Before this new role, I was mainly based in and around West London and have worked for non-profit organisations within mental health services and NHS primary care.
