We want to treat as many people at home as possible.
We expect most people will need support at home or a community setting e.g. a care home, primary care, community health and social care will work together to support their local communities
We want to use our community hospitals for those in most in need of them.
Our community hospitals will provide a middle ground between our acute hospitals and home. They will offer oxygen therapy, treatment and rehabilitation including palliative care.
We want to use acute beds for people with the most acute needs.
We will use our acute hospitals for people who need ventilation, oxygen or emergency treatment. We want our acute colleagues to be able to focus on the care they are providing so we are making it easier to refer on to all community services.
If you are a colleague looking to refer someone you can find detailed guidance and access links on your organisation’s intranet.
