This team provides the following three services Falls Prevention (general referrals), Community Physio (GP Referrals only), and Rapid Assessment (which can only be referrals from health and social care professionals). Falls Prevention Service referrals should be made by visiting http://www.lancashirecare.nhs.uk/Community-Rehab completing referral form and attaching this to referral. The referral will be declined if the referral form is not completed in full. The service provides a specialist service for adults who have fallen or who are at risk of falling. Patients are visited in their own home and a multifactorial assessment to check for environmental and other contributing falls risks is completed. People may be assessed by an Occupational Therapist and/or a Physiotherapist. We will discuss options for reducing risks of falls and agree a care plan for any on-going treatment or equipment. We also operate an open referral system through the Main Access Point for NHS community referrals 01772 777999. After receiving your referral we may ring the patient to triage the situation and either allocate directly to a therapist or place referral on our waiting list. We endeavour to see people according to need and within 8 weeks where possible.
