Nottingham & Nottinghamshire: Reducing delayed transfers of care
A case study from the Building Health Partnerships programme 2018/19 Cohort
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.
