Julie Barnett is an MDT co-ordinator in the East area of the city, based out of Hendon’s Riverview Centre.

Julie took up her role in December and works as part of the area’s Community Integrated Team (CIT), involving her colleagues from health and social care to ensure that some of the most unwell people in the city are given the right care to support their needs.

“We work closely with GP practices looking at which of their patients need support, and we act as an interface between them and the wider CIT, sharing that information with the health and social care professionals who form our multi-disciplinary teams (MDT), to ensure they are fully up to date and supporting the right people.

“The new way of working is making a big difference, and creates a forum in which we can share updates and ensure that people in the city who need the most care, are being given the most comprehensive programme of support.”
