Care Co-Ordinator

Silvia Simon

This service is aimed at Patients who are +65 years old and registered with us however we are here to help all practice patients regardless of age.  

Many people with long term conditions, and their carers, struggle to find their way around the system. There are services available, however, people often have no idea a service is there, or that they might be eligible – particularly those who have never needed social care in the past. 

The patients’ needs may not always be medical but largely social such as housing or loneliness and the care coordinator may help with finding a solution to their needs.

The primary objective is to:

  • Simplifying access to services;
  • Empowering people to find their own solutions to functional, non-medical problems;
  • Creating alternative community options and solutions for problems arising from living with a (or multiple) Long Term Condition(s);
  • Providing a link between the patient, GP, social care, third sector and other resources to provide good quality outcomes in terms of managing care and the patient and or clinical experience.

Services links and referrals to carers support, transport support, financial benefit checks, home from hospital help, care at home, care home information, meals on wheels, befriending, housing concerns, food bank, young peoples’ services, proactive care, dementia services, Parkinson’s support, occupational therapy and a host of other services.

Please enquire at reception by leaving a message for the Care Coordinator to call you and discuss your needs.
