6x Vacancies for Care Navigators – £21,909 full time fixed term one year post, with extension subject to available funding. Location will be in London Borough of Brent, with one of three host organisations (Sufra NWL, Living Well and Brent Mencap).
What is Whole Systems Integrated Care (WSIC)? The WSIC model of care has been co-designed at a local level to support people aged 18 and over with one or more long term condition who are at risk, in need or unstable (from a medical, psychological, social and wellbeing perspective). Working with local professionals, Care Navigators (CNs) will introduce self-care and self-management in to the model of care and support patients and carers to do so more effectively.
WSIC breaks down the barriers between different professions and services. It will help overcome fragmentation between health, mental health, social care and the VCS. Brent is one of 8 areas in NWL delivering WSIC; this programme makes us a national Pioneer for Integrated Care.
How does it work? The Care Navigator is a patient facing role. Care Navigators will support and work alongside GP Network teams and other professionals (social workers, mental health etc.) to manage a caseload of patients referred for WSIC case management. They will ensure self-care is embedded at all stages in the WSIC pathway. They will work with practices to support administration of a new patient activation measure (PAM tool) and with patients and carers to develop manageable goals and tailored Care Plan. They will support patients, carers and GPs to access local voluntary and community services and peer support in line with the Care Plan. There will be six vacancies for CNs in total and each will be aligned to one of the four GP Networks in Brent (Kilburn, Harness, Wembley and Kingsbury and Willesden).
