The Bexley Rapid Response Team works closely with the A&E and acute medical units at Queen Elizabeth hospital to minimize unnecessary hospital admissions and support early discharge from hospital where we can. The team will assess your health and social care needs and, if appropriate put together a package of care, which could include:

  • Referral to our Community Assessment and Rehabilitation team for a period of reablement at home
  • Referral to an intermediate care facility for a period of care and rehabilitation
  • Home visits from health and/or social care professionals
  • Referral to another health or social care team.

The team also provides assessments for people who need them at home.

The Bexley Rapid Response Team are available Monday to Sunday from 8am to 8pm.
