Main duties of the job
This service will be provided by a range of professionals including care navigators, peer support works and Mental Health Practitioners (ARRS) who will work in conjunction and collaboratively with the existing services to provide the one team approach, delivered from GP surgeries.
Practitioners will rapidly identify health and social needs and then work proactively with all relevant organisations to ensure a 'one team' approach, with the aim to prevent inequalities and improve access to services and to enhance engagement and confidence for service users.
The further aim is to work alongside and integrate service users into the local community, collaborating with service users, families and carers to ensure issues such as debt, carer fatigue, drug and alcohol issues are identified and addressed in a holistic manner, using a biopsychosocial model of care, alongside mental health assessment and treatment.
Currently, our primary, secondary and voluntary sector services can often be difficult for service users to navigate, resulting in potential delays and barriers to accessing services in a holistic and timely manner. These roles will play a vital part in providing preventative, integrated care - right from the point of access.
