Community Assessment and Rehabilitation Team

The Community Assessment and Rehabilitation (CAR) Teams is an integrated service that’s made up of both health and social care professionals. The service can provide social care support for people who live in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, as well as health services for those with a Greenwich GP.

The CAR Teams main focus is to ensure that everyone is given an opportunity to maximise their independence before they are assessed for their longer term health and social care needs. There are 3 CAR teams covering the geographic areas of Woolwich, Eltham and Greenwich. Each CAR team also has a specialist service linked to it:

  1. Greenwich CAR – Specialist Neuro-Rehabilitation Service
  2. Eltham CAR - Greenwich Falls Prevention Service
  3. Woolwich CAR - Intermediate Care bedded units

The Specialist Neuro Rehabilitation Team provides therapy to people with acquired neurological impairments to enable them to lead an independent life in the community.

The Falls Team accepts referrals from older adults (65 and over) who have fallen or who have been identified at risk of falling.

The Woolwich Team discharge patients from the three Intermediate Bedded Units and from the PCT funded beds in Richard Neve House.
