Care Homes Team
We are a multi-disciplinary healthcare team comprising of Nurses, pharmacists, Therapists, a dietician and care coordinators. We work closely with the Care Home GP lead for Rushcliffe – Dr Rachel Shaw, and on behalf of the GP surgeries that cover the care homes within the Rushcliffe Primary Care Network. We also link in with the wider network of community health and social care services.
Our remit is founded upon the principles of the NHS Enhanced Health in Care Homes initiative, and as part of this service we aim to visit all new admissions to care homes to chat about healthcare needs and undertake a proactive Comprehensive Geriatric Health assessment. Working with care home residents, their families and care home staff, we support with the development of an Individualised Personal Healthcare and Support Plan. As part of our initial assessment, we can also signpost and refer to health and social care services we identify will be beneficial. If appropriate, we can also support with discussions around Advanced Care Planning and the ReSPECT process.
