Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme: Are you struggling to recruit your new roles?

by Mehdi Juma

Maintaining ‘business as usual’ is challenging with the additional pressures of the pandemic and delivering a Covid vaccination plan.

Part of the solution could be provided through ARRS.

Having conducted the largest randomised controlled trial (RCT) of proactive health coaching as an intervention within the NHS, HN has vast experience in recruiting and supervising Health Coaches – resulting in a positive impact on GP workload. HN’s approach removes your concerns of employing and training Health Coaches as well as the practical challenges of office equipment and associated overheads.

How we support GPs and PCNs

We have two services to support your PCN:

HN Anticipatory CARE offers GPs and PCNs a team of fully trained health coaches and care coordinators that are clinically supervised. This is fully financed though ARRS and provides you with control over the service.

What HN can do for your PCN and Health Coaches
The six month, work-based learning programme for health coaches, takes a blended approach of workshops, action learning sets and mentoring from experienced clinical coaches. We use our knowledge of recruiting and developing clinical health coaches to deliver:

  • Improved Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMS)
  • A reduction in workload for practice staff

Our tried and tested approach to training takes a holistic view of health coaching, which teaches participants to think more systemically about their role. We build confidence by role-playing the skills and behaviours that are required to be an effective health coach.
