Older people can have the most complex of needs and addressing these needs can be hugely challenging.  Whilst there is a strong evidence base demonstrating that older people benefit most when they have access to multidisciplinary teams working within integrated services, it is difficult to find anything happening inside older people’s healthcare that has not been influenced by nurses.

Here at TyneHealth we are privileged that our frailty nurse practitioners lead in the
provision of enhanced healthcare services for older people living in care homes.
Working in partnership with our colleagues in the care homes, local primary care
networks and wider community services this service seeks to embrace a proactive
approach to care delivery using the robust evidence base of comprehensive
assessment and care planning.

Currently the service works in the north west area of North Tyneside as well as in the Whitley Bay area and if you or your family are registered with the following practices then we will be working alongside you to give you a good experience of healthcare.
