The East Haringey CHINs (East A and East B) have been working with Haringey Public Health and Haringey Clinical Commissioning Group to develop a new pathway of care for people living with type 2 diabetes; for newly diagnosed patients and those with an established diagnosis, but have poor control.

We are currently recruiting a Bilingual Care Navigator who will be working closely with patients who have had a new diagnosis and patients who are poorly managing their diabetes to better access resources and care. You will also be working closely with the wider diabetes services in Haringey to help patients navigate their diabetes journey and access respective services and care including helping them to make full use of the community and voluntary sector resources available locally.

This is a unique opportunity to join a progressive organisation where we value and reward the performance of our staff.
