What is the Care Co-ordination Service (CCS)?
The Care Co-ordination Service will give extra support to those that need it the most. The CCS will work with you to make a plan for your future care that will centre on your goals for your health and well-being as well as what actions you can take to achieve them. We can then work as a team to support you to complete your actions.
The Care Co-ordination Service will help you and the GP Practice by:
- Helping to create a care plan tailored to your needs and goals
- Booking and co-ordinating your appointments
- Referring you to the services identified in your care plan
- Being a single contact point for all of your referral, care plan and co-ordination queries
- Assisting you in better maintaining and improving your health and wellbeing
- Checking in with you regularly to see how you are getting on and providing encouragement
- Extra support those who feel their health is getting worse and needs help to improve or maintain it
- Assistance for anyone who is struggling to co-ordinate care for themselves/someone they care for
