Here in Wakefield we have pioneered care navigation in primary care, developing a cohesive and safe model that has proven to not only save GP time but also improve patient experience and widen the work we do in partnership.

Watch this video from our very own care navigation pioneers about why our care navigation model works.

Available courses

A comprehensive implementation guide to support system leaders in developing the system infrastructure to support Care Navigation.

This package will guide you through mapping the local infrastructure of services, creating referral criteria and developing a directory of local services.

This will precede accredited online training for staff.

This interactive course will guide you through an Introduction to Care Navigation. The course covers;

  • What is Care Navigation?
  • Who can be a Care Navigator
  • Undertaking care Navigation
  • Working with other care professionals for effective care navigation

This is an accredited training course working in partnership with Certa. Once you have completed the course, the assessment and the evaluation your details will be sent to Certa and you will receive an accredited certificate in Care Navigation. 

We have created a great tool that can be used by your social prescribing teams. The tool enables you to assess a person's needs at the beginning of the assessment and then at the end of the intervention demonstrating clearly the distance traveled for the person and the service.
