The Community Treatment Team (CTT) works with adults in the community with an acute physical need who could potentially be treated at home, rather than attend accident and emergency (A&E). The aim of the service is to prevent unnecessary hospital admissions for those people who are experiencing an acute, physical health crisis, for example: exacerbation of infections or worsening of long term conditions such as COPD and falls without injuries.
The service consists of doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, social workers and physiotherapists who work with primary care, community services and healthcare partners so that people can receive medical, nursing and therapy interventions in their own homes wherever possible, without need for hospital admission.
Telephone: 0300 300 1660 (treatment) | 0300 300 1661 (therapy)
