The Neuro Case Management Service is a specialist community team working with people who are living with the challenges of a long-term neurological condition, their families and carers.
Our aim is to work with other services to help people address their priorities about the management of their condition and access the right services, at the right time, to help them lead a life that is as full and independent as possible.
We can support any adult aged 16 or above who is registered with a GP in Sheffield and has been diagnosed with a neurological condition such as Parkinson’s, Cerebral Palsy, Motor Neurone Disease, Epilepsy or has an acquired or traumatic brain injury.
Our team of specialists will work with you to:
- co-ordinate access the right care now and in the future
- communicate between the different services that are supporting you
- identify a main point of contact to help you and those around you manage your care
- ensure you have a care plan in place that is designed to improve both your physical and mental wellbeing
We’ll work with you to access the appropriate care to best support your needs. That means that we’re often working behind the scenes co-ordinating other services, so you might not see us very often.
We can support you to access advice on everything from medicines management and accommodation needs, to supporting your family or carer.
If you have had a stroke and this is your primary diagnosis please speak to your GP who may refer you to the specialist community services Sheffield.
The Neuro Case Management Service forms part of the Trust’s Long Term Neurological Conditions service which also includes the Neurological Enablement Service and the Sheffield Community Brain Injury Rehabilitation Team.
Right First Time
We are working as part of the Sheffield Accountable Care Partnership to ensure that services across the city are used appropriately, proportionately and to reduce duplication in the support offered.
How is the service accessed?
You can refer yourself to our service, or you can be referred by a health or social care professional.
A relative or carer can also refer you to the service but they must have your permission to do so.
When you are initially referred to us you’ll come through to our Referral Point Unit who will triage your referral to ensure you are put in touch with the right service.
