Care Home Support Team

Locala cannot guarantee the accuracy of this translation service.

Our population is ageing and older people are staying in their own homes for longer. This means that those entering care homes have increasingly complex needs. The Care Homes Support Service will work with established care home teams with the primary aim of keeping residents well and to prevent unnecessary hospital admission.

Our multi-disciplinary team is made up of Nurses Practitioners, a Staff Nurse, Mental Health Nurse, Physiotherapists, a Dietician and a pharmacist, plus access to consultant Geriatrician support when needed.

Our team will be working closely with the 48 Care Homes in Greater Huddersfield to improve the quality of patient care across all homes. This will include improving education and confidence for care home staff, patients and their families to be able to better manage and have knowledge of their condition.

We hope to help drive a change from reactive to PROACTIVE care, working with local healthcare providers to manage residents on-going health needs.


The service is available within the core hours of Monday - Friday 8.30am to 5pm.

If you would like to contact the care homes support team please phone our dedicated phone line: 030 3003 4347.
