Hospital home care makes hospital stays shorter and can even prevent them altogether. This approach is a great way to provide specialised care techniques in a safe setting at the patient’s home after a complex medical treatment or surgical procedure, or if requested by their GP or consultant. Hospital home care is delivered on prescription and coordinated by a doctor, offering patients comprehensive and coordinated care conducted by a multidisciplinary team of salaried and self-employed healthcare professionals. It is provided as part of comprehensive, palliative and oncology care pathways.
