Community Support Service

Working alongside the Community Integrated Rehabilitation Team our aim is to provide additional assistance when patients get home from hospital or are at risk of being admitted to hospital.

Through our network of Community Health Champions we can provide patients with local friendly and flexible non-medical support. 
How does it Work?

A Co-ordinator meets with the patient to discuss what matters to them. This could be anything from travelling independently on a bus, support with filling out forms, assistance to attend appointments, a walk around the local area to picking up a prescription or some shopping.

We are here to help the patient to build confidence, realise their full potential and offer practical support and information.
