    Newcastle Integrated Older People’s Service

About Newcastle Integrated Older People’s Service

    The Newcastle Integrated Older People‟s Service is both innovative and comprehensive in providing services centred on the older person and their health needs.

    Strong multi-disciplinary teams are well established and the unified management structure and proximity of services means that cross boundary working and collaboration is positively encouraged to the benefit of the patient. The service has strong research and educational links with the Institute for the Health of the Elderly.

    The service encompasses assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of both mental health and physical health conditions.

    Services provided are assessment and treatment of mental health problems in inpatient wards and day hospitals, continuing mental health care in community nursing homes and a community psychiatric nursing service for older people. There is also psychiatric liaison service to the acute hospitals trust and a service for younger people with dementia.

    Stroke rehabilitation is carried out in a purpose built ward and general rehabilitation in another three wards. A day unit provides rapid assessment and treatment and has strong links with the community focussed stroke discharge team, orthopaedic discharge team and elderly resource team.

    Continuing care for physically frail patients is provided in the community with 60 designated beds in 3 private nursing homes, which are supported by a designated team of professionals.

    There are also a number of specialist nursing roles within the service for example Tissue Viability Nurse Specialist, Rehabilitation Liaison Nurse, Specialist Stroke Nurse with other roles being planned or in developmental stages.

Nursing Opportunities

    For newly qualified nurses and those wishing to return to the NHS we have an excellent support and development programme which can be individually tailored. This includes structured preceptorship objectives and planned rotation between clinical areas.

    For more experienced nurses there are career paths to ward management or specialist nursing roles. Staff have access to internal development via the Trust learning and development centre and higher education modules at UNN.

    The service aims to promote family friendly working and

    flexibility in line the overall objectives of the Trust.

    Community Psychiatric Nursing Service

    The Old Age Community Psychiatric Nursing (CPN) Service comprises of three separate teams providing a CPN Service to three sectors across the city, and the west of North Tyneside. The three teams are:- Castleside, Akenside and Gibside. See map overleaf for specific sector areas.

    There is both a mixture of skills and grades throughout each service which form the multi-disciplinary team for each sector.

    Whilst each team is very similar to one another there are naturally some slight operational differences as a result of the differing sectors and multi-disciplinary teams they service.

    Each team provides psychiatric liaison to three Community Resource Teams throughout the city.

    SECRETARY

    COMMUNITY PSYCHIATRIC NURSING SERVICE

    PHILOSOPHY OF CARE

    The purpose of the Old Age Psychiatry, Community Psychiatric Nursing Service (CPNS), is to make available the skills and knowledge of experienced psychiatric nurses working in a community setting to assist elderly people with mental health problems and their personal and professional carers.

    To provide a high quality service, we believe that the CPN team should be accessible and adequately resourced in terms of manpower, education, supervision and support.

    We believe the client group has a right to an unbiased, non-judgemental, non-prejudicial service, which provides a nursing assessment based on individualised needs and integrates closely with both the hospital based Multidisciplinary team and an extended range of community agencies, to provide the maximum beliefs to their quality of life.

    We also believe that the needs of carers/families are of great importance and will be recognised through assessment, information sharing, and education, support, continuity, accessibility and prompt responses.

    We believe the nurse-client relationship should be built on honesty, trust, confidentiality and clear purpose.

    We believe in and uphold the rights of older people. They have the right to retain choices, to maintain dignity and independence and to be supported by people who have appropriate attitudes, education and ability.
