Care management team (South Kirklees)

The South Kirklees care management community team service is for working age adults who have, or are likely to have, a psychotic illness with a significant degree of complexity and disability.

The team provide an assessment service, and when needed will put together a package of care to meet service user’s and carer’s needs and to manage any risks.

Service users can access a range of medical, nursing, occupational and social interventions within the context of the Care Programme Approach (CPA – a specific way of assessing and reviewing someone’s needs) framework.

Why would someone choose the service

  • We will assess service user’s needs within 14 days of the initial referral into KSPA.
  • All care packages are developed in conjunction with service users and carers, and are regularly reviewed.
  • The team can offer timely reviews by a medic when needed.
  • We can enable service users to access funding for Self Directed Support (SDS – gives service users more choice, control and power over the support they receive) where eligible.
  • We have strong links with other community services, such as drug and alcohol support, women’s services, sports and health groups etc.
