research report

Delayed Transfers of Care & the Voluntary and Community Sector in Greater Nottingham

Findings and Recommendations

January 2020

Charlotte Pace, Dr Vita Terry


This report is based on work undertaken through the Building Health Partnerships programme in Nottingham. The programme worked with the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector (VCSE) and the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Integrated Care System (ICS) to help create a better picture of what it will take to reduce the number of patients who end up staying in hospital when other options (in particular going home) would be far better for their health and well-being.

The research exercise provided a unique opportunity for VCSE organisations to share perspectives on the services and support already being provided in the Greater Nottingham community, and to learn from local experiences where it is possible to improve outcomes for patients leaving hospital (and to avoid admissions in the first place).
