Introducing your care navigators
Cancer Care Co-Ordinator
We have access through our network to a Cancer Care Co-ordinator who will signpost patients for advice support and help. This is via referral from the surgery.
We now have members of the practice team who are trained as care navigators. They are highly trained and experienced members of staff who work in the practice. They can guide you towards local community groups, services and organisations for support and more – particularly when you don’t know where else to turn.
This might be if you need advice around finances, if you’re a carer and need some extra support, want to know how to get more involved in community activities, or help if you’re living with a condition which impacts your day to day living.
You may find that you get asked a little more information than normal – this is so we can help make sure that you get the help and support that you need.
