Health Navigator is a free phone service, designed to help people with chronic conditions get their health back on track.

You can access Health Navigator if you have one or more of the following conditions:
- heart disease

You may also access the service if you are at high risk of developing any of the above conditions due to:

How it works
Your Health Navigator Coordinator will listen to your health story and then help you plan what you would like to happen to improve your health. This might include linking you with other services, providing you with information about your conditions or supporting you to make a change in your life.
Health Navigator works alongside health care professionals you are already seeing, such as your GP.
You can choose to access this service over the phone or by using video conferencing.
The My Plan is a personalised plan that you develop with your Health Navigator Coordinator. The plan helps identify your goals and work out the steps you need to take to self-manage your conditions.
Having a plan also ensures that you, your doctor and other health providers are all working together to improve your health.
