National Audit of Intermediate Care: NAIC 2014 (Year 3: Continuing Under-Provision) (NHS England / NHS Benchmarking Network)

Summary

Professor John Young, National Clinical Director for Integration and Frail Elderly at NHS England has commented on the problem of continuing under-provision regarding intermediate care services.

“The core function of intermediate care is in providing alternatives to hospital care, either by preventing hospital admission or expediting discharge from hospital, using a rehabilitation-type intervention typically lasting less than six weeks. Perhaps it requires a time of austerity and an ageing population for the potential of intermediate care to be drawn into focus. The National Audit of Intermediate Care provides this focus”.
