The UK Government has recently pledged to cut needless hospital admissions and help inpatients return home sooner – through community-based rapid response teams and dedicated support for care home residents.

“The 24/7 rapid response teams are made up of doctors, nurses and physiotherapists and will provide urgent care and support in the community as an alternative to hospital. This includes emergency treatment as well as support to help patients recover closer to home, which will help people stay healthy and independent for longer.” UK Government 21 November 2018

Chaired by Dr Sreeman Andole, Assistant Medical Director, NHS England this conference focuses on reducing unnecessary hospital admissions through effective management, rapid response services and provision of alternatives to hospital.  NHS Trusts across the UK are struggling to cope with demand on services and patients, particularly those or are frail or elderly would often be better placed being treated in their own homes reducing the impact of deconditioning and long hospital stays.
