Crumpsall Vale, Intermediate Care Unit Tour – 20 February
07 February 2018

On Tuesday 20th February (2 pm – 3 pm), The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust will be hosting a free ‘talk and tour’ of the new Crumpsall Vale, Intermediate Care Unit at North Manchester General Hospital.  The event will be an opportunity for staff, public and our Trust members to speak with staff and patients and to learn more about the unit.

Crumpsall Vale intermediate care unit is a 24 bedded unit and is located on two floors, separated into three pods of eight beds, eight residential beds (green bay), on the ground floor and sixteen nursing beds, (yellow and orange bays) on the lower ground floor. Therapy intervention is offered seven days a week with the aim to improve patient and carer experiences by providing better access to the right intervention, at the right time, delivered by the right health or social care worker.

The service is provided by a multi-disciplinary team of Nurses, Allied Health Professionals, Social Worker and General Practitioners from The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust and Manchester City Council.

The Intermediate Care service offers holistic and comprehensive assessments of people so that increasing numbers will be able to maximise and maintain their independence in the local community. The aim of the service is to deliver all services through professional groups within teams so that they truly place people at the centre of this care pathway.

Intermediate Care supports the transition between illness and recovery and in North Manchester; Intermediate Care is primarily, although not exclusively used by older people and especially those in advanced older age.

The aim of the social model of rehabilitation for Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust is to focus on services that are person centred, promote independence and facilitate appropriate safe discharge arrangements.

Carol Kavangh, Service Manager Community Assessment and Support Service.  said:

“We are very proud of our new unit and the team is committed and dedicated to truly make a difference to our patients”
