Adult Community Services Integrated Care Team

nurse bandaging footThe Integrated Care Team care for adults in their own homes, including care homes.

The team supports recovery, stabilising symptoms and helping people to manage their own conditions. Our patients may be housebound, elderly or frail and at risk of being admitted to hospital. We also support patients when they are discharged from hospital.

We work closely with GPs and other health and social care workers to give the care and support needed by each patient.

Our teams are made up of:

  • district / practice / community staff nurses
  • occupational therapists
  • physiotherapists
  • community matrons
  • specialist nurses
  • clinical nurse specialists in end of life care
  • health care assistants
  • social workers
  • mental health workers
  • self care advisors

Our community assessors see patients in the Emergency Department and Medical Assessment Unit at local hospitals. Their aim is to help prevent unnecessary hospital admissions and re-admissions, by referring and signposting patients to community services.

As well as the home service, there are also clinics in the local area.
