Case Management Team
Case Management is a service within the integrated care community that seeks to improve the health and well-being of people living with long-term conditions. Case Managers and Care Navigators visit people in their own homes and carry out holistic health and social care assessments. We seek to identify needs and work collaboratively with other community services to achieve a more co-ordinated and timely response to your needs. We receive referrals from GPs.
We work collaboratively across health, voluntary and social care. Typically we will be involved in your care for a period of about 6 – 8 weeks, and then discharge you to the care of your GP. There is opportunity for you to re access case management if any needs arise but this would need to be done through your GP.

Case Management Aims
• To help you access services that make life easier.
• To enhance your well-being and promote quality of life.
• To help you understand any long-term conditions you may have and manage these well.
• To avoid inappropriate admissions to hospital.
• To promote and facilitate your independence.
• To enhance the care that you receive in your own home.
• To work with you to understand your medications.
• To discuss and document at your request the things that are important to you and your future.
• To develop a personalised care plan which supports your self-care.

Who are the Case Management Team and what will they do?
We are experience nurses and non-clinical care navigators who work closely with yourself and your family and other health and social care professionals to co-ordinate your care in times of particular need, for example after a hospital admission.

We help to make sure your wishes are heard, so you can feel in control when decisions are being taken about your health and well-being.

We promote access to local resources that you may not otherwise be aware of. We listen to you and prioritise what is important to you.

Why have I been referred to Case Management?
Often people with a number of conditions find it hard to manage. You may have times where you feel unwell and need extra support.

We are there to help you to feel better, manage any problems and ensure your health is as good as it can be. We aim to promote care in the community and closer to home where possible.

Book an appointment with your GP or contact the Case Management Team on 01229 402578 for further information.
