Managing health, wellbeing and preventing crises through innovative partnership working
The Multi Agency Care & Coordination (MACC) Team is a proactive and preventative care service for adults in Haringey. It aims to support adults living with frailty and or multimorbidity to maintain or improve their health, independence and well-being. Led by the Haringey GP Federation and Whittington Community Health, the MACC team brings together and builds upon the following existing preventative and care coordination services:
- Frailty Integrated Care Network (CHINS)
- Haringey Coordination and Prevention Service (HCAPS)
- Haringey Teleconference MDT
- Community Matron Service
In addition, team members are drawn from Haringey Adult Social Care, Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust and voluntary sec-tor agencies to create a wider multi-agency, multi-professional team: Care Navigators, Community Matrons, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Pharmacists, a Social Worker, Mental Health practitioners, and a GP.
