Integrated Local Care Teams, sometimes called ILCTs, ensure patients living in Staffordshire are better supported to remain healthier and independent at home.
ILCTs comprise of nursing and adult social care teams who support frail, older people and people living with long term conditions such as asthma, diabetes, heart failure and kidney disease, providing care before a crisis occurs.
The teams work with local GPs and specialist nursing and therapy teams to identify those in greatest need of health and social care services. Service user needs are assessed and an individual care plan is created and delivered by a single multi-disciplinary team. Each service user is given a personalised care plan which is assigned a care co-ordinator; this could be their social worker, district nurse or therapist.
This way of working is improving service delivery and sharing assessment processes, and ensures that patient information does not have to be collected more than once, enabling the provision of co-ordinated, timely care.
The service also operates an out of hours function.
