Full service description

The Portsmouth Rehabilitation and Reablement Team (PRRT) is provided as part of a jointly commissioned single community pathway for assessment, transition, rehabilitation and reablement that includes Spinnaker Ward, the Victory and Grove Units and the Locality Health and Social Care Community Teams, supporting the transition from illness to recovery in older people by delivering a spectrum of time limited assessment, stabilisation and treatment, as well as rehabilitation and reassessment through an integrated health and social care model.

 

PRRT supports admission avoidance and timely discharge from hospital for people with a range of health and social care needs. The team provides a  rapid community response to enable the immediate care needs of the patient to be assessed and a support plan put in place, after which a range of specialist assessments including nursing, social care, physiotherapy and occupational therapy may be carried out to support the development of a multidisciplinary care plan for the patient.
