Bridging the Care Gap Report
12th April 2019
This report captures a Roundtable discussion on how health and social care leaders are attempting to bridge the care gap between an overburdened acute hospital sector that has seen exponential increases in demand and a care system that is struggling to cope.
This report summarises the discussions by setting out the common themes and critical issues that were identified. These have been grouped into five sections:
- Delayed Transfers of Care
- Viability of the social care model
- Innovations in service delivery and practice
