As NHS Trusts struggle to cope with the demand that the COVID-19 pandemic has put on services and patients, this timely conference will give you the guidance to reduce unnecessary hospital admissions through effective management, rapid response services and provision of alternatives to hospital especially for older people with frailty who would may be better placed being treated in their own homes reducing the impact of deconditioning and long hospital stays.

“The NHS will reduce pressure on emergency hospital services. Boosting ‘out-of-hospital’ care in the way set out above makes sense in its own right. But there are also very substantial pressures across the NHS in looking after emergency patients. Over the past five years, on a like-for-like-basis, a patient’s chance of having to be admitted to hospital as an emergency has fallen by 12%.. within five years all parts of the country will be expected to have improved the responsiveness of community health crisis response services to deliver the services within two hours of referral in line with NICE guidelines, where clinically judged to be appropriate.”

NHS Long Term Plan 2019

The NHS Long Term Plan includes a “new NHS offer of urgent community response and recovery support: investing in and enhancing existing rapid community response teams, to prevent unnecessary emergency hospital admissions and speed up discharges – importantly receiving services within two hours in a crisis and a two-day referral for reablement care, and to improve access via a single point of access for people requiring urgent care in the community.”
