Service delivery during COVID-19 pandemic

Due to the ongoing pandemic, and to help keep you and our colleagues safe we’re following national guidance and minimising face to face contacts. We will continue to support you through video consultation, telephone consultations and virtual clinics and we’ll see you face to face where this is safe, and the most appropriate way to support you in line with the national guidance.

Short Intensive Support Service

Patients at risk of going in to hospital may be referred on to our Short Intensive Support Service.

Our multi-disciplinary team, led by advanced nurse practitioners, provides care to a patient at home up to six times a day, for up to 72 hours, helping to stabilise their condition and prevent unnecessary hospital admissions.

This is particularly beneficial to frail, older people and those with long term conditions who would prefer to be treated at home in a familiar environment rather than being taken in to hospital.
