Camden Integrated Primary Care Service encompasses district nursing, nursing care, rehabilitation, self-management and enablement for people in their own homes and other community settings.

The multi-disciplinary team is made up predominantly of district and community nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, psychologists and speech and language therapists. The team works closely with the patient’s general practitioner (GP).

Following a comprehensive assessment of the patient’s needs, the team creates a care plan which can include the following:

The aim of the service is to provide high-quality care to support GPs in managing often complex housebound patients to live as independently as possible.

Eligibility criteria (who is the service for?)

The service is for adults over the age of 18 who live in Camden and are registered with a Camden GP who are housebound and cannot easily attend clinics.

The service is not suitable for people:

  • In need of social care but do not have a nursing need or rehabilitation potential
  • Who need immediate admission to secondary care
  • Who require administration of psychiatric medication or whose main presenting problem is a mental health issue (these should be referred to the appropriate mental health team)
  • Who need help with tasks such as collection of prescriptions, delivery of incontinence equipment or purchasing equipment privately

How can someone be referred?

The service accepts referrals from GPs and other health and social care professionals, voluntary sector workers, patients, carers and families.

To make a referral, telephone the Central Access Team on 020 3317 3400.
