Community health and social care services
The CHSCS is a multidisciplinary team of nurses, therapists, support workers, and administrative support staff delivered at a Locality level supporting a group of GP practices. The Havering CHSCS teams work from three locality bases aligned to a number of GP surgeries which support patients within a defined geographical area. Staff are agile workers and are able to work from any NELFT premises or other location in line with service needs and agile working policy.
The purpose of the CHSCS is to enable patients to remain in the community for their episode of care where possible; to prevent unnecessary hospital attendance and admissions and where admission is inevitable, to reduce length of stay and re-admission rates. The team support complex care needs in the community setting to include patients with long term conditions, palliative and end of life care (EoL care) needs.
Any patient referred to the CHSCS has a named health care professional. This person is responsible for ensuring the patient’s care is appropriately coordinated for their needs. The named health care professional will be allocated to the patient based on the level/type of need agreed at the time of referral, triage and assessment.
