A neighbourhood Multi-disciplinary Group, or MDG, is a group of health care workers and social care professionals who unite as a team to ensure the planning and implementation of person-centred care and its delivery for individuals who require support.
The focus of an MDG is to review and problem solve complex cases, provide plans and anticipate care needs for those using health and social care services.
The groups include:
- A GP
- Practice Nurse/Advanced Nurse Practitioner
- Social Work Advanced Practitioner
- Community Nurse
- Mental Health Professionals
- Consultant Geriatrician
The Multi-disciplinary Groups goal is to help older people in Salford achieve greater independence and improved wellbeing, by integrating care within communities.
This currently allows vulnerable adults over 65 to receive coordinated, high-quality care from an increased range of services when they are needed and help to make sure that people will be seen by the right person, at the right time, in the right place.
