My Care, My Way
An integrated health service for people aged 65+ available through your GP surgery
What is My Care, My Way?
Managing your health and care can be difficult, especially when you are dealing with many different professionals and multiple services. My Care, My Way (MCMW) is an integrated care service designed to give you additional support to better manage your health and wellbeing, and stay independent and active for as long as possible. It is provided through your GP surgery by local NHS community services and Age UK Kensington & Chelsea.
MCMW will pair you with a dedicated worker who will help you negotiate a system that can be very confusing. You will be allocated a Health and Social Prescribing Co-ordinator and Case Manager who are based in your GP surgery. They will work in partnership with you and the GP to help you realise your health and social needs.
What does it mean for me?
You will be given the opportunity to discuss your overall health and circumstances with your GP in an extended 6-monthly or annual review. This will give you time to ask questions and make a plan together. Afterwards, you will meet with either a Health and Social Prescribing Co-ordinator or Case Manager to discuss the options available, identify what matters most to you and, if appropriate, link you in with other services in the borough.
