Aged Psychiatry Assessment and Treatment Team (APATT)
|St Vincent's Aged Psychiatry Assessment and Treatment Team (APATT) is a multidisciplinary community mental health service based at St George’s campus in Kew. Referrals from GPs are welcomed.
A case manager is appointed and members of the APATT will visit the person wherever they live, or wherever it is most convenient for them. After this assessment the team will devise an agreed care plan, then work with the person, family, carers and other organisations and services to ensure that the most appropriate care and treatment is provided.
