Providing Enhanced Care Newcastle Gateshead CCG

Our learning over the past seven years has demonstrated that delivering Enhanced Health to Care Home residents requires consistency, coordination and a multidisciplinary team [MDT] approach with rapid access to specialist advice for shared decision making.

The foundations of this model are evidence based and focus on frailty with comprehensive geriatric assessment at its core, the creation of shared personalised care plans and access to a specialist MDT for complex decision making. The model recognises that residents require an integrated proactive case management approach to effectively manage their multiple and complex mental and physical health needs. Ultimately the aim is to expand so that everybody no matter where they reside will have the best quality of care.
