Issue details

Out of Hospital Care

This report describes the principles and pathways that will operate across Tameside and Glossop to support people to remain out of hospital, both in a personal residence and in a care home.

The overarching principle is that the registered practice remains the prime provider of general medical services during core care hours and PCAS out of hours and the ICFT Intermediate Tier Services will continue to support people who require district nursing or more specialist care.

Two key pathways will be followed to reflect the opportunities that the 24/7 support available through care homes bring.

Care home residents will have proactive and reactive support from Digital Health alongside that of the registered GP and ITS.

This report does not set out the specific details of any significant changes to existing services or new services. These will be the subject of additional detailed reports as required.
