Samaritans provides health and wellbeing support for people in Cessnock and Taree.

Samaritans Care Navigation Service is a pilot program to help people achieve their health and wellbeing goals through one-on-one support.

Care Navigators work with local GP’s to support people who are looking to improve their health and wellbeing by;

  • breaking down barriers to access care
  • helping people develop self-confidence
  • linking people with local services
  • helping people understand the importance of looking after their own health and wellbeing

Who we can assist

People in Cessnock and Taree regions.

Please note this service is not appropriate for someone experiencing a physical or mental health crisis.

How it works

Step 1. GPs nominate specific health goals for their patients who would benefit from the Care Navigation Service using the Goal Card (see below)
Step 2. Care Navigators receive the GP referrals and then contact the individuals to develop a plan for achieving the goal
Step 3. Care Navigators work with each person for around 12 weeks to support them to achieve their health goals and then provide a report back to the GP

There is also an option for people to self-refer to this service. Call to find out more.
