Call for more care at home

Stephen Cook, Bupa Home Healthcare’s director of pharmacy, has called for the benefits of out-of-hospital care to be available fo more and more patients. Not surprisingly. Mr Cook said that there is increasing acceptance of the benefits for patients associated with providing healthcare beyond the traditional hospital setting, which means high-quality care can provided more conveniently for patients, while also creating significant cost savings for the hard-pressed NHS. He called on the healthcare sector to work together to assist NHS managers and clinicians in overcoming barriers to the introduction of out-of-hospital care so that they can make it a reality in their own organisations.
