Who we are
The Integrated Community Reablement and Assessment Service (ICRAS) is a 24 hours a day, seven days per week service consisting of General Medical Practitioners, Advanced Practitioners, Pharmacists, Nursing staff, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Social Workers, Podiatrists, Dietitians, Assistant Practitioners, and Health Care Assistants.
What we do
Our vision is that a multidisciplinary team work together to manage the care of:
- People in the community requiring support of an urgent nature and who are at risk of imminent hospital admission
- Those transferring from a hospital environment and require additional support.
ICRAS provides high quality, culturally sensitive, nursing and therapy treatment/interventions for people in their permanent or temporary place of residence (Hub rehab units). Our multidisciplinary team approach is to support discharges and prevent avoidable hospital admissions, ensuring we work with existing social care providers and other agencies.
Within the ICRAS service we have inpatient Intermediate Care beds (Hub Rehabilitation Units across Liverpool), as well as Community services across Liverpool and Sefton. Through early intervention, we are able to reduce the incidence of re-admission providing an evidence-based approach to clinical practice and improved patient care.
