Outreach Team

Outreach team logoThis specialist team respond to emergency calls within the hospital Trust.

They are called by ward nursing or medical staff to give advanced clinical advice or treatment if a patient's condition is deteriorating.

Their aim is to prevent patients from having to be admitted to intensive care. They respond to almost 2,000 visits every year.

The seven-strong team are also involved in educating ward staff about critical care – including identifying early signs of deterioration so staff can take proactive action quickly.
