Team helps keep patients at home

  • Comment
community nurse Julie Pickernell is leader of a new rapid response team that supports patients at home rather than in hospital.

The team, set up by North Yorkshire and York PCT in December, helps patients in Selby who are medically stable but who require high levels of care and support. Patients are referred to the team by district nurses, GPs or social services.

Ms Pickernell said: ‘We’re so pleased to have helped many patients and very much look forward to helping many more.’
