'People’ not ‘beds’ — changing the language we use in health and social care

We are changing the language around Delayed Transfers of Care (DTOCs) across health and social care — encouraging organisations to refer to, and report on, people delayed within hospitals rather than the beds they occupy. By doing this, we hope to further highlight the harmful impact (such as deconditioning) that can result from prolonged hospital stays and delayed discharges. NHS
