The Community Response and Rehabilitation Team (CRRT) service helps people with health and care needs to remain in their own home, to maintain their independence and wellbeing, and avoid unnecessary hospital admissions.

Our team of nurses, therapists and other specialist staff will talk to you about any difficulties you might be having. We will then provide or arrange health, rehabilitation and support services to help you meet your needs.

If you, or a family member think you might need advice, help or support to remain independent in your own home, then contact Community Health and Social Care Direct and a worker from one of our services will discuss with you to find out how we could help meet your needs.
