Integrated health teams

What we do?

Integrated Health Teams (IHTs) provide skilled and compassionate nursing care and interventions for patient’s registered with a Warwickshire GP. This care is delivered primarily within the patient’s own home but clinics are used to offer specialist assessments and ambulatory care. We have Non-Medical prescribers in our teams and have dedicated pharmacy support.

We have an in-house developed electronic scheduling tool that allows timely delivery of care and ability to plan our work as efficiently as possible.

Each IHT is wrapped around a GP population of approximately 50,000 and work geographically within the county of Warwickshire.

Service provision is for those who are not able to attend an outpatient setting or where home would be the most appropriate place to deliver care based on clinical decision.

  • Palliative and end of life care and support
