The Health and Social Care Navigators play a pivotal role in the Integrated Care Programme which aims to improve health outcomes, promote and enable self-management. The Care Navigator will work with identified patients who will benefit from support to manage their conditions and to avoid unplanned admission to hospital where appropriate.
The Care Navigator will work closely with health and social care services by participating in and supporting the case management approach by acting on referrals and participating in GP/MDT and stakeholders meetings as necessary.

The Care Navigator is a developing role and part of the integrated care programme East London Foundation Trust is committed to working with Newham Clinical Commissioning Group in further developing the approach and role of care navigator, so the role may evolve and change as the integrated care programme develops.

The Health and Social Care Navigators facilitate integrated working across the Extended Primary Care Teams, GPs and other stakeholders and voluntary organisations and work closely with GPs, Extended Primary Care Team and other relevant Health and Social Care Professionals to ensure care delivery is of a high quality and meets required standards.
The care navigators are also the central point of contact for patients who have been identified as moderate or high risk including patients that would benefit from their input where appropriate and their relatives/carers and the interface between primary and secondary care providers as well as social care and voluntary organisations.
