Community Assessment Unit


The Community Assessment Unit for frail and elderly patients is based in Eltham Community Hospital. The new specialist community hub is led by a senior geriatrician and supported by a multi-disciplinary team. Staff at the unit can carry out assessments and create bespoke care plans tailored around the needs of the individual patient, whether that involves the patient needing hospital care, care in their own home or residential home.

This service provides vital support for elderly or frail residents enabling them to avoid unnecessary visits to A&E or admissions to hospitals.

GPs and London Ambulance Service personnel can refer patients into the Community Assessment Unit. 

The unit is open seven days a week from 9am to 5pm (with referrals up to 3pm).
