Who are we?
The Multi Agency Care & Coordination (MACC) Team is a proactive and preventative care service for adults living with frailty or complex long term health care needs. We work in partnership with Haringey GP practices to identify those who may benefit from our support.
We are an integrated team of professionals from multiple disciplines and agencies. The team includes:
• Multi-disciplinary team (MDT) tele-conference
• Social workers
• Mental health workers
• Occupational therapists
• Community matrons
• A general practitioner
The role of the team is to support patients to maintain health, well-being, independence and self-management of their health conditions. We are the Haringey Hub for Integrated Working.
What do we offer?
As an anticipatory care service we aim to keep people well, work towards their goals and reduce avoidable hospital attendances or crises.
Referrals will be triaged by a senior clinician and if accepted may be proposed to MDT teleconference, and or receive a holistic assessment (comprehensive geriatric assessment where appropriate).
We can provide tailored interventions to support the client’s medical, functional, mental health and social care needs. Adopting a patient centred approach, we set goals with our clients and create personalised care and crisis plans.
The team can coordinate care needs and will work in partnership with professionals already involved in a client’s care to provide wraparound multi-disciplinary support. We are well placed to link our clients with other services and support they need to make a positive difference to their health and wellbeing.
An example of such are those who:
• Recently returned home from an unplanned admission to hospital
• Are at risk of falls or repeat falls
• Live with dementia which is having an impact on daily function and/or those who are carers themselves
• Have medication compliance or polypharmacy issues
• Are not engaging with services and at risk of frailty deteriorating
• Adults living in borough of Haringey registered with a Haringey GP.
• People living with moderate or severe frailty with rising risk; Electronic Frailty Index (eFI) ?0.25 or Rockwood Clinical Frailty Score of 5 or above. Please see Clinical frailty scale (nice.org.uk)
• People living with multiple and/or complex long-term health conditions (including dementia) who would benefit from MDT input.
• People who require coordination of their care, whether already known to multiple services or not.
• People who have frequent unplanned hospital admissions and are at future risk of this continuing.
• People who are carers themselves where the care is at risk of breaking down.
• Where the sole need can be met by a single service (e.g., Package of care only or for major adaptation = Social services; acute mental health crisis = BEH; rehab therapy input = ICTT ).
• Immediate admission avoidance cases or those who need to be seen within 12-24 hour (Rapid Response).
