Our service provides specialist care for patients eligible for funding under category one NHS care.
We assess and plan care according to each person’s level of need, offering tailored interventions that are person-centred and maximise the person’s potential. The aim of the service is to enable people to function at their optimum level.
We also facilitate end of life care, working in partnership with GPs and palliative care teams.
