Nurse Lead for Older People and Complex Care

Joanna (Jo) Dodd

Jo has been appointed to Upton Surgery as Nurse Lead for Older People/Complex care. Some patients may have already met her when she was the Locality Lead for the Integrated Care Team, based at Upton Surgery.

The role is to promote the health and wellbeing of older people living at home, and those with complex care needs. This will include the development of preventative and support services, health assessment clinics, acting as point of contact, and troubleshooting/problem solving concerns for this group of patients, as appropriate. 

Jo is also able to act as care co-ordinator/care navigator for patients experiencing a health crisis, working alongside other Health and Care professionals to co-ordinate appropriate support and care. She also works very closely with your GP and other surgery staff, often undertaking joint home visits with GP’s to review patients who are too frail to leave their home.
