Alcohol Care Team
South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust | North East and Yorkshire
In the 11 months since we launched the new Alcohol Care Team providing a seven-day service which has supported over 2,200 patients so far.
ACT’s positive impact means we’re expanding across South Tyneside District Hospital and Sunderland Royal Hospital and what we provide.
We offer specialist help, largely for alcohol dependency or patients at high risk, who come to us via our Emergency Departments or as inpatient admissions.
As a result, more than 80% have been referred for further support, while work goes beyond our hospitals through strengthened links with community services.
