Our dedicated practice based Elderly care coordinator, Indra, provides a unique service to Watford Health Centre. Indra works closely with the GPs and the rest of our expanding multidisciplinary team at the surgery and coordinates patients care rapidly to the most appropriate health professional or team. She is often the first point of contact for those that are frail, living alone or housebound and for their carers and provides a much needed link. She has links to community services including district nurses, OT and physio as well as mental health, social care and provides post hospital discharge support. Providing a much needed continuity of care for elderly patients and their carers, Indra helps keep our growing elderly population as independent as possible, supporting them when things get too much, whilst helping with more rapid access to services to meet their needs.
