Primary Care Navigation Service
Michael Waugh Primary Care Navigator works at Saville Medical Group every Thursday
Newcastle GP Services Ltd secured funding to develop the service; this involved appointing 5 Primary Care Navigators (PCN) to work across GP Practices in Newcastle. The service aims to be that essential link and support for patients to access a range of community/ voluntary/ statutory services.
Primary Care Navigators can talk to patients about their needs and concerns and together patients can establish what support they may benefit from. These may include help with finance and benefits advice, exercise and mobility, wellbeing and lifestyle, loneliness and Isolation, housing and welfare advice, although this is not a restrictive list. The service is free, impartial and confidential to people aged 18 and over.
