New Care Coordinator introductory webinar

NHS England and NHS improvement would like to invite new care coordinators to an introductory online session to introduce new care coordinators to each other and to find out more about the role and provide feedback on what you want to see going forward.

The introduction of health and wellbeing coaches and care coordinators from 01 April 2020 is in addition to the existing social prescribing link worker role which has been in place since July 2019. Working together through a single point of access, these three roles reduce and support the workload of GPs and other staff by supporting people to take more control of their health and wellbeing and addressing wider detriments of health such as poor housing, debt, stress and loneliness. Their contribution enriches the skill mix of primary care teams. As a result, people have improved lives, benefit from timely access to health services, and are supported to develop skills and confidence to manage their own health and wellbeing.

These roles are intended to become an integral part of the core general practice throughout England, embedding personalised care within PCNs and supporting all professionals to take a personalised care approach.

The introductory session will take place on 8th October, 12:00-13:30.

Please note that this is invitation is only for new care coordinators.
