Collaborative Care Team (CCT)

The Collaborative Care Team is not an emergency service and it takes an average of 2 weeks to receive an appointment after your referral.

CCT will usually work with you for 12 weeks, but sometimes longer if resolving complex problems.

When you grant CCT your consent for treatment, it’s with the assumption that you’ll be a willing participant in your personal care management plan.

Collaborative Care Team | General Practice Alliance

The Collaborative Care Team will not replace any other visits from medical services or adult social care provision.

CCT’s main objective is to prevent hospital admittance and enable you to live healthily in your own home, by assessing your particular needs and referring you to the appropriate services.

CCT offers a wide clinical skill set and many years of professional experience, covering physical health, mental health, substance misuse and psychosocial issues.

Every patient referred to the CCT will be seen initially by two members of the team, usually in their own home.
