Our Navigator program has been running successfully in Glasgow's Royal Infirmary since November 2015. We recently appointed an additional Navigator- Sam Fingland, Sam brings a wealth of experience in commonly seen issues including homelessness and domestic violence.
We have captured the first six months of Navigator in the attached report, as well as a summarised version in the form of an info graphic.
We are delighted to confirm that Scottish Government has awarded an additional £70,000 of funding, allowing the scheme to extend to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary in the coming months.
Navigator compliments the world class service provided within Nhs Emergency Departments. We are proud to work as part of their team providing patients with the best possible outcomes.
This innovative partnership with Medics against Violence and the NHS has now supported over 200 people to seek the help they need and has interrupted the corrosive cycle of violence that for too many is a way of life.
