New community frailty service making a difference to people’s lives

GPs in the South Cotswolds have worked with local partners to set up a new community service to help people with frailty and their carers.

The team, which includes nurses, a senior matron and wellbeing coordinators, provides advice, support and care as well as helping to meet health, emotional and social needs to end of life support.

They work closely with a range of partner services, including hospitals, GPs, and the voluntary and community sector.

More than 430 patients have benefitted from the service this year with extremely positive feedback.
