How do we work?
City and Hackney Mind offers a coordinated ‘Single Point of Entry’ to access all of our services. A named Network Coordinator follows each client’s progress throughout their journey, to ensure that people receive the right kind of support at the right time, and that support is well-coordinated between services and partner organisations.
They work closely with statutory services within both primary and secondary care, social care and with voluntary and community organisations.
Referral agencies can liaise closely with the Single Point of Entry team to determine whether Mind's services can help their clients.
Close work with partners, is intended to improve the quality of life of clients, and to prevent unnecessary use of statutory services, such as A&E or hospital admission.
City and Hackney Wellbeing Network
