Out of Hospital Care - Carlisle, Longtown & Brampton
The Out of Hospital Care Team is a multidisciplinary team comprising of nursing and therapy staff, supported by social care, pharmacy, caring for people aged 18 and above in the Carlisle, Longtown and Brampton area. Health care professionals make a referral which is then triaged for suitability for the service.
Where it is considered safe and appropriate to do so, the patient will be cared for in their own home, rather than in hospital. A health and social care co-ordinator will work with the patient and third sector organisations to ensure any social care needs are identified to help the patient maintain their independence in the community. The team will work closely with the patient`s GP at all times. Short term care is provided, individual to each patient, with onward referral to the necessary care providers as appropriate.
