 What can I expect from you?

​If this is your first referral we normally assess you in your own home environment and involve your family or carers if you are happy for us to do so.

Following your assessment, if you would benefit from our services we work with you to develop a care plan. The community team normally visits you at home or you could be offered a clinic appointment. If you need to be admitted to hospital then the DIST arranges this with you.
