Working with community trusts to improve the care of older patients
This session will explore how two primary care homes and networks are working in close partnership with their local community trusts and other organisations to improve the care of older people. Team BDP Primary Care Home works with the Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust to reduce the length of hospital stays for older patients and provide rehabilitation in a local care home. Lakeside Stamford Primary Care Home works with a wide range of statutory and voluntary organisations in Lincolnshire to reduce the number of falls among older people. Falls resulting in serious injury are the most common cause of hospital admission in its catchment area.
