ICAT was developed in 2014, led by a consultant geriatrician.

Present day, there are monthly face to face multidisciplinary meetings for each care home which allows better development of trust between the MDT members, better integrated working and patient involvement.

We aim to employ a workforce which is as representative as possible of this population, so we are open to the value of differences in age, disability, gender, marital status, pregnancy and maternity, race, sexual orientation, and religion or belief. The Trust believes that as a public sector organisation we have an obligation to have recruitment, training, promotion and other formal employment policies and procedures that are sensitive to these differences.
