Community care

Innovative partnership between our Community Medical Team and Surrey Downs Health & Care

This new approach to providing care for the vulnerable and frail at home brings together GPs in our Community Medical Team (CMT) and community health professionals such as community matrons, district nurses and older people’s mental health practitioners. By working together, they are able to offer proactive and joined up care for adults.

The CMT, led by a Clinical Director, plays an important role in taking forward the effort to design integrated community services for patients in their own homes.
