REQUEST A CARE ADVICE CALL FOR A PATIENT
ALWAYS FREE AND INDEPENDENT HELP
GP, Dr Richard Newland founded our service in 1995, Patients would ask him, as a family doctor, for advice because they were struggling to find professional help and support to find the right care. Our service is based on regional advisers working closely with families, helping them with every step in the process of finding suitable home or residential care.
GPs, district nurses, social workers and community groups have the option to request an initial care advice call for a patient via a simple GDPR compliant form. A local adviser will call the patient and answer any questions relating to care and if the patient wishes, can liaise directly with them and their families to find appropriate care.
Our company is widely used and trusted by many Local Authorities, NHS trusts and clinical commissioning groups. We often work in partnership with all 3 groups in a specific location.
Patient satisfaction and managing long term costs are at the the heart of our service
