Nottingham & Nottinghamshire: Reducing delayed transfers of care

A case study from the Building Health Partnerships programme 2018/19 Cohort

January 2020


This is the case study of the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Building Health Partnerships (BHP) area. It tells the story of how they worked across sectors in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire to reduce the number of delayed transfers of care from hospital, particularly amongst people aged over 75 with dementia.

In 2017, a review of 24 cases where patients had been discharged from hospital in Nottinghamshire found that 42% could have had an even more independent pathway if opportunities to support this were more available and known about. Doing this would have resulted in a 21% saving for health and social care budgets. The aim of this BHP area was to address this issue, improving patient health and wellbeing, as well as creating a more effective and efficient health and care system that makes the most of all its assets.

The work was led by a steering group comprising of Nottingham Community Voluntary Services (NCVS), Nottingham University Hospitals, Adult Social Care, the  Integrated Care System and Healthwatch Nottingham and Nottinghamshire (HWNN).

This work was supported by the Building Health Partnerships Programme delivered by the Institute for Voluntary Action Research and Social Enterprise UK and jointly funded by The National Lottery Community Fund and NHS England and NHS Improvement. Click here for further information and resources.
