Care Navigation

In 2017, Armidale was chosen as a regional humanitarian resettlement location. Resettlement commenced in 2018 with the arrival of Ezidi humanitarian refugees, with more than 650 people settling across Armidale to date.

HealthWISE is funded by the Hunter, New England, and Central Coast Primary Health Network to deliver a Care Navigation service to assist individuals and families to identify their health goals, and to build their health agency and capacity to make empowered health decisions for their future.

Working alongside general practitioners and local specialists, the Care Navigator acts as a partner to assist clients with interpreting the Australian healthcare system, navigating the health services, managing referrals onto support groups or other organisations, and providing knowledge and agency to manage their health outcomes.
