What are prevention assessment teams (PATs)?

Prevention assessment teams are multidisciplinary teams that support people to maintain their independence, health and wellbeing in their own homes.
PATs normally work with people who do not receive other specialist health or social care services. PATs can provide information and advice and access to practical and emotional support either over the phone or with a home visit.

Prevention assessment teams (PATs) include:

  • Assistant Care Mangers from WSCC
  • Health Advisors from Sussex Community Trust
  • Social Care workers & Community Support workers from Guild Care & Age UK West Sussex

There are three general teams that cover different parts of West Sussex and one specialist team for working-age adults that covers the whole county.
