Camden Care Navigation and Social Prescribing Service

 The Care Navigation and Social Prescribing Service consists of three linked teams - Care Navigation, Community Links and Wish Plus.

Care Navigation

For residents that are registered with a GP in Camden and who have complex needs and long-term health conditions, Care Navigators team will be able to support you so that the care you receive is joined-up and seamless, ensuring you receive the right help at the right time, and in the right place.

Care navigators can provide:

  • Up to 6 weeks intensive case management support for residents who are aged 18+ and have one or more long term condition or are frail/ elderly or and are at risk of requiring hospital or specialist care.
  • Personalised support and assessment to help identify needs and support navigation through the local care systems.

 

Community Links

Community Links is managed by Voluntary Action Camden. It is often the first point of access for the Care Navigation and Social Prescribing Service. Community Links supports people whose needs are less complex by referring them to the right community based services and activities, or a range of social prescribing support. These can include emotional and practical support, social activities, support for carers, health and wellbeing support, or programmes to enable you to manage your health condition.

Community Links Volunteers provide:

  • An outreach element to social prescribing, by providing sessions in GP practices and in other community settings, including, but not limited to, libraries, community centres and faith groups.
  • Support to access community activity provision, information and advice.

 

WISH Plus

For people who require support to access statutory, local authority and VCS organisation, the WISH Plus team can refer you to organisations that provide information and advice on keeping warm, income, safety around the home, and health and wellbeing.

Anyone can refer themselves to WISH Plus and you do not need to be a council tenant.
