Primary Care Navigator

The surgery is delighted to be able to provide patients with a Care Navigator. The purpose of this service is to direct patients to services and programmes that will assist them in dealing with issues and struggles they may face.

Our Care Navigator is not just used for health reasons, they will be able to help with a range of issues such as:

  • Money issues
  • Personal issues
  • Bereavements
  • Loneliness
  • Carers

We understand that patients may struggle to discuss these issues with a GP or feel they don’t have enough time to chat. Our Care Navigator will play an essential part in helping with patients discuss their issues and referring them to the correct service.

If you feel you need this service or know of someone that may benefit from speaking to our navigator please contact the surgery on 0191 282 1010 or call into the surgery for more information.
