The GP Liaison Nurse is based in the emergency department at CUH. It is intended as a link between the Emergency Department (ED) and the community.
Essentially the role is one of enhanced communication between the ED and community services. Acting as a link, the liaison service facilitates a more integrated service for patients and their families. By bridgimg hopsital and commmunity services, it assists patients in following the most appropriate available pathway during their ED admission and discharge journeys.
This is achieved by communicating with in house multidisciplinary teams and linking these with GPs, PHNs, CIT, MSW, CReST and other community based services.
