Evidence showed that many patients could be more effectively managed; an average 37 day length of stay and 46% of patients admitted not meeting the in-patient criteria at some point in their stay. The majority could have been managed in a homecare/community care setting.
- Enacted modelling, using Scenario Generator, which suggested with improved community support the same admission activity could be easily maintained with reduced ward capacity
- Worked closely with adult social care to reduce delayed transfers of care which resulted in no delayed transfers of care
- 24 unused community beds were decommissioned
- Enhanced community based rehabilitation support was commissioned for ‘home’ setting as an alternative to staying in Lings Bar harnessing third sector expertise.
- Service redesign and real time evaluation/feedback conducted in partnership with patients and carers has led to the mainstreaming of this model
- Acute trust liaison enabled vacant ward re-utilisation to provide haemodialysis facilities
- Significantly improved experience for rehabilitation and haemodialysis patients
- Recurrent QIPP saving of £1.2m for decommissioned beds
- The haemodialysis unit within the freed-up ward has avoided previously planned £7m new build spend.
