Intermediate care provides a bridge between hospital and homes at key points in people’s lives and is built on strong partnerships across health and social care. Scaling up intermediate care is an opportunity to draw on skill sets of our multi-professional workforce, meet urgent and emergency care demand, and develop community-based assets.
Following the publication of NHS England’s Intermediate Care Framework (due to be published this Autumn), this online learning summit will explore how NHS, local authorities and adult social care providers are working together to expand and improve access to high quality step-down intermediate care. The summit will include case studies from local system partners, including the national intermediate care frontrunner sites; we will also give a presentation on the blueprint for intermediate care; and there will be an opportunity to pose questions to those leading this work nationally and locally.
The session will be co-chaired by:
- Dr Jane Townson OBE, CEO of the Homecare Association and Chair of the Care Provider Alliance.
- Jenny Keane, Director of Intermediate Care and Rehabilitation for NHS England
