Integrated Clinical Assessment and Treatment Services (ICATS)

The Integrated Clinical Assessment and Treatment Services (ICATS) provides a range of specialist assessment and treatment services for patients.

The service is provided by multi-disciplinary teams including a doctor, specialist nurse and allied health professionals such as physiotherapists.

Patients who do not require urgent treatment are referred to the local ICATS team for assessment, treatment or diagnostic tests. If a patient’s condition requires the attention of a consultant, arrangements are made for the patient to be referred for a hospital outpatient appointment. The aim of ICATS is to help reduce outpatient waiting times.
