A proportion of our population are unable to attend the surgery for review, either because people are temporarily housebound due to illness or more permanently.
Often there are complex needs which require the input of a multidisciplinary team of health care professionals.
We have built a joint service between Middlewood and East Cheshire Trust Community Team to try to meet the needs of people in the homes to the very best of our ability.
We have diverse team consisting of GPs, district nurses, our paramedic, Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Therapists and our Social Team. Having such a wide range of professionals allows us to have real time discussions of how to best manage a situation and deploy the most appropriate person or people to help at any given time.
