Then your doctor might suggest you are discussed by a multidisciplinary team (MDT)
In Sunderland we’re bringing together health and social care professionals and other local support agencies to help improve services for people who need a little bit more help than most.
This includes ‘multidisciplinary teams’ (MDTs) made up of your family doctor, district nurses, social workers and sometimes Age UK Sunderland or Sunderland Carers’ Centre representative working together to discuss and plan your health and social care.
Not everyone with health and social care needs will be discussed as not everyone needs the additional support.
If your case is talked about and a better plan for your health and care is suggested then a member of the team will talk to you about it and explain the benefits and changes to your current care.
