We are a team of Frailty practitioners and consultants, who’s primary aim is to swiftly assess frail older people who attend the Emergency department at The Northumbria hospital, conducting comprehensive geriatric assessments, implementing treatments plans and ensuring these individuals are moved to the right place first time for their ongoing care needs.
We are happy to discuss patients with community services and GP’s. We are also keen to be made aware of any frail patients who are being sent to The Northumbria hospital, who we can help expedite their assessment process through the Emergency department to their preferred place of care.
