David Cowan – Care Navigation Lead

David’s enthusiasm for supporting health professionals and organisations to improve public health is unparalleled! As our Care Navigation Lead, he has played a key role in developing the care navigation model of care at West Wakefield, through to its development of a nationally recognised training programme that is firmly embedded within the GP Forward View.

As part of his work, David has also designed and implemented a successful social prescribing model and patient pathway, developing appropriate assessment tools, data collection and analysis methods in the process. He is a Lead Facilitator for the Social Prescribing Network for Yorkshire & Humber and the North East of England.
