Care Navigator Service continues

Age UK Solihull are pleased to announce the award of a 2 year contract to provide a Care Navigator Service on behalf of the Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group. This follows a successful 6 month pilot.

The Care Navigator Service is aimed at older people aged 65+ and their carers who are registered with a Solihull GP, this includes out of borough patients but not Solihull residents if they're not registered with a Solihull GP.

We are here to help

Age UK Solihull has been commissioned by Solihull Council and the Clinical Commissioning Group to provide the Solihull Community Information & Advice Hubs. Located in Chelmsley Wood and Central Solihull, the Hubs enable all residents aged 18 or over to receive high quality information, advice and access to services that meet their needs.

In the first full year (Apr 2015 - Mar 2016), 7,054 people accessed the Community Advice Hubs. 19,477 contacts were made with customers or on their behalf. 5,986 referrals were made to local partner organisations that could help support individuals with their specific needs.
