Complex Care Support Team

A multidisciplinary team of professionals from primary care services and Vall d’Hebron Hospital, working together with a shared objective.

The Complex Care Support Team, launched in February 2017 as part of the Casernes - Vall d’Hebron Hospital Primary Care Service, is an early intervention, personal and proactive outpatient service for those with complex chronic care needs at risk of aggravation within the AIS Nord districts. It is based on a new organisational model promoted by Barcelona Primary Care Services and Vall d'Hebron Hospital. The aim is to provide comprehensive intermediary and intensive outpatient care to people prone to instability and with a history of regular visits to A&E or admissions to hospital.

Located in the Sant Andreu district of Barcelona, the 800 m2 centre has 8 consulting rooms, which can be increased to 16, as well as 4 hospital beds available without having to be admitted through A&E.
