What does the team do?
The Transformation Team was set up in 2014, with the aim of coordinating, expanding and improving the provision of care to the more frail and vulnerable patients in our communities. The team is led by an experienced local district nurse and includes a pharmacist, physiotherapist and former social workers in addition to the nursing staff. Together, the Transformation Team conduct a holistic review of patients and their carers, taking into account medical, social and care needs. Working closely with local volunteer and health agencies the Transformation Team help put in place packages to help care for our vulnerable patients and maintain independence as much as is possible. Patients are referred from General Practice, Community Teams and also from our local hospitals. The Team work closely with Community Elderly Care Consultants to support their clinical expertise and also with discharge teams in the hospitals where required to ensure that patients are supported at home after leaving hospital. Looking to the future, TLC and its Transformation Team are developing an Acute Frailty Service for our area in collaboration with other stakeholders, West Hampshire CCG and Southern Health Foundation Trust.
