Care coordinators:

Work with the frail/elderly and those with long term conditions to personalise care, supporting patients to understand and manage conditions, and

  • Help to ensure a patient’s changing needs are addressed

  • Provide coordination and navigation of care and support across health and care services e.g. hospitals, diabetes teams, falls teams, memory clinic etc.

  • Work with patients in both the community and care/nursing home setting

  • Bring together all the information about a person’s identified care and support needs, and explore options to meet these, within a single personalised care and support plan (PCSP) on SystmOne

  • Review patients’ needs and help them (or families) access the services and support they require to understand and manage their own health and wellbeing, referring to social prescribing link workers, health and wellbeing coaches, and other professionals where appropriate

  • Reduce frequent surgery attendance and hospital admissions

  • Potentially provide time, capacity and expertise to support people in preparing for or following-up clinical conversations they have with primary care professionals to enable them to be actively involved in managing their care and supported to make choices that are right for them

  • The aim of the CCO is to help people improve their quality of life.
