Swale Rapid Response
We’re an inter-professional team comprising of Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Nurses, Mental Health Nurse and Support Workers.
The aim of team is to prevent patient’s admission to hospital and support discharge from hospital.
For patient’s recovering from ill health a programme can be devised to promote independence, wherever possible. This may entail providing equipment to assist with activities of daily living.
The team provides their services either in the patient’s own home or in an intermediate care bed on Harty or Kestrel Ward.
For patients with long term conditions a rehabilitation programme can be planned. Exercise programmes can be supervised by support workers.
