Case Managers work with people who have a range of complex health, social care needs and are over 18 years old.
There are Case Managers based at 8 GP surgeries in the Bradford District.
You can self-refer by ringing 01274 256131 and asking to speak to a case manager or your GP can make a referal for you.
A case manager can help you and your family to manage your long term health needs
and treatment better. They will work with you to try and keep you at home and not
be admitted to hospital and can refer you to other services if necessary.
They will develop a care plan with you and support you to remain independent. They will make sure your views are heard.
The Complex Care team helps co-ordinate medical and emotional support for adults with multiple conditions, mainly elderly.
Medical and care experts from Age UK Bradford and District, Carers Resource, Airedale NHS Foundation Trust, Bradford District Care Trust, Yordales Health and Bradford Council put together individual packages of support for each person.
They are given their own ‘navigator’ to co-ordinate their care.
