This is an evolving new role where Care Coordinators deliver personalised care to a cohort of patients, providing extra time and expertise to support patients and carers in preparing for, or in follow up to, clinical conversations they have with primary, secondary health and social care professionals. You will work closely with GPs, and other primary care professionals to identify and manage a caseload of identified patients, making sure that appropriate support is made available to them and their carers, and ensuring that their changing needs are addressed. Pathways Care Co-ordinators work collaboratively setting goals, tackle issues by working in partnership across organisational boundaries for patients facing complex health, social and emotional challenges, using techniques such as health coaching, and motivating people to achieve their potential.
