Intensive Health Outreach Team
The Intensive Health Outreach Team provides a specialist comprehensive tertiary service for people with learning disabilities and other vulnerable adults with associated health problems and learning disabilities who require intensive assessment. We aim to provide services that promote health, are preventative and person centred.
The aim of the service is to work in partnership with individual service users, family and others to ensure reasonable adjustment is secured within mainstream services. The outcome is for the individual to establish the best possible quality of life and to enable people to live as independently as their abilities allow.
The team is made up of a group of dedicated and skilled practitioners, committed to providing a person-centred service in a variety of settings including in hospital, 24 hour staffed supported accommodation and the service user’s home. We recognise how a care pathway relates to each individual and provides individualised care with collaboration from the right health partners achieving equitable health outcomes.
IHOT is based at Charlton Lane Hospital in Cheltenham. They can be contacted on 01242 634175.
