Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust has teams of advanced clinicians working in the community who can respond within two hours if someone’s health or wellbeing suddenly deteriorates at home, which will avoid the need for an ambulance and prevent hospital admissions. Our advanced nurses and therapists can provide assessment, treatment, support and a 2-hour rapid response for Knowsley via the Integrated Frailty Team for registered patients who are aged 18 and over and at risk of a hospital admission.

The service will be operational 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday. The last referral accepted by the service will be at 7pm. At weekends and Bank Holidays operational hours will be 9am to 6pm, with last referrals accepted by 5pm.

For more information, including the type of conditions most suitable for referral to your UCR team, see the attached poster which needs to be displayed in GP practices.
