‘Navigator’ support for Keighley community health

First published in Keighley

Two posts are being created to help people find the best health care services.

‘Community health navigators’ will help vulnerable patients access support.

The roles – one full-time based in Keighley, the other part-time in Skipton – form part of an initiative run across the Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven Clinical Commissioning Group area.

Dr Brendan Kennedy, an executive GP member of the local CCG, said: “Working in partnership with health and social care services and the voluntary and community sector, we aim to provide high-quality care, which really benefits patients and their families.

“The community health navigators will raise awareness about how the different services can benefit patients.”

Appointments are being made by Keighley and Ilkley Voluntary and Community Action and Craven Voluntary Services.
