Dr Girish Patel explains Care Navigation

Posted: 8th March 2019

Our Neighbourhood Primary Lead Dr Girish Patel, also a GP at The Sides Medical Practice in Worsley, provides a brief overview of Care Navigation.

Many of Salfordโ€™s 45 GP practices are now using this new way of working to help their patients receive the most appropriate care and treatment. It involves a member of the practice reception team, who is trained in Care Navigation, asking the patient a few more questions about the reason they want an appointment. Sometimes a GP isnโ€™t the best person to see and the patient could be seen and treated quicker or more appropriately by a nurse, mental health practitioner or other health professional.
