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.
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 Health Advocates
For people whose needs are less complex, Community Links Health Advocates can support them by referring them to the right services and community activities, or a range of social prescribing support. These can include emotional and practical support, support for carers, health and wellbeing support, or programmes to enable you to manage your health condition.
Community Links Health Advocates 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.
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.
