Network Navigation Service

Provided for people registered to GP practices within Mansfield & Ashfield and Newark & Sherwood Clinical Commissioning Groups.


PICS employ 4 Network Navigators, who cover the Newark & Sherwood and Mansfield & Ashfield areas. The Network Navigators provide a link between acute, community, general practice, adult social care, public health and the third sector. They aim to reduce the need for non-elective care and to support patients in having a better quality of life.  The Network Navigators provide high quality non-clinical and administrative support including health information analysis. They aim to deliver a continual development of the GP’s  Multi-disciplinary Team Meetings, which are groups of health professionals meeting to discuss particular cases.

The Network Navigators role helps those living with the effects of long term conditions including frailty and heart failure and so aim to reduce admissions and readmissions into hospital.  The Navigators continually aim to increase the number of people managing their own conditions and receiving the necessary support.
