The Proactive Care team (PACT) is a specialist team of health professionals. We help adults who have complex health problems to live more positively in the present, and to face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence.
Who is the Proactive Care team for?
We support people over the age of 18 who have a long-term condition which impacts on their wellbeing. They may be finding it difficult to access the right NHS services, or require support with symptom management.
Often, we work with older people who need support to remain independent or to plan for end of life. We also work with carers and families to help them with in supporting someone who has dementia.
What services does the Proactive Care team offer?
We offer services in addition to those already provided by local GPs, primary care wellbeing services and community services.
Our services are short-term to address a person’s particular needs and priorities, so they can live well and avoid unnecessary visits to their GP or A&E or urgent hospital admissions. We can provide interpreters if required.
Our services include physiotherapy, psychological support, speech and language therapy, dietary advice and occupational therapy. We also offer longer term support for people with dementia and their families and carers from specialist Admiral Nurses.
What is the Admiral Nursing service?
Specialist Admiral Nurses form part of the Proactive Care team. To provide support when things are particularly challenging an Admiral Nurse is often allocated to a family and will remain involved ready to step back in with support as the need arises.
If you are caring for someone with dementia find out more about how the Admiral Nursing service could help.
