  • Introduction Health Navigator is a service that links people living with chronic conditions to the health care they need, when and where they need it. It also supports the development of self management skills. This is a collaboration between WACHS and Silver Chain and is currently a pilot in the Wheatbelt and Central Great Southern regions.
