Enhanced Care Team
Enhanced care is a concept which brings together services uniquely commissioned to respond quickly and from a multi professional holistic assessment perspective.  If the referrer feels an urgent response is needed we can respond within 2 hours of a referral being received. 

Broadly our aims are: to prevent an admission to a hospital setting, both acute and community hospitals, to reduce attendance at emergency departments for non urgent care, to reduce ambulance call outs to patients without an emergency need, to provide a point of advice and support for patients and carers 24 hours a day and to support patients to return home much earlier from any hospital.

Patients with a wide range of minor injuries including cuts, grazes, wounds, sprains, strains, minor burns and broken bones can be treated at MIUs at Evesham, Malvern or Tenbury.
