Local care cover

Format: Electronic; Paper 


This briefing shows how the community health sector is driving the transformation of local care systems and how innovative community healthcare providers are enabling people to stay healthy and independent and avoid crises that lead to unplanned hospital admissions.

The NHS faces an unprecedented dilemma: the supply of funding is struggling to match the growing rate of demand for healthcare, both scheduled and unscheduled. Health services provided in the community have a crucial role to play in meeting this challenge, as they are able to provide care closer to people’s homes that improves their health as well as their experience of care, so helping reduce avoidable hospital admissions and readmissions through prevention and early intervention.

This briefing also details the challenges that need to be overcome to build upon this work and drive forward the necessary shift of care into the community.
