Can NEAT Help You with Avoidable Admissions?

The Norfolk Escalation Avoidance Team (NEAT) wants to develop a dedicated care home pathway and we need the help of care homes in the Norwich locality.

NEAT improves patient experience and individual outcomes by arranging a bespoke, timely, appropriately sequenced and holistic package of care and support. In its first year NEAT supported over 1185 patients to stay in their place of residence during a crisis. As we move into our second year we want to focus on how we can support care homes.

Our aim is to co-design a new care home pathway for NEAT, and we want to discuss what we can do together to avoid admissions to acute settings when they are not needed and support residents to stay in their homes through crisis.

How Does NEAT Work?

NEAT is the single point of access for urgent, unplanned health and social care needs. A co-located, multi-disciplinary team that coordinate planning to:

  • Support and manage patients and carers safely in the community through a period of crisis, using the most proportionate level of intervention
  • Maximise independence by identifying additional support needs, addressing the wider determinants of health and promoting self-care
  • Facilitate fast-track early supported discharge from an in-patient setting

Shaping a Care Association for Norfolk: Consultation Event - Dereham

These sessions have been co-designed by the Norfolk Care Association Executive Steering Group, and University of East Anglia and the University of Suffolk.
