The role of the Hospital at Home team is to treat patients at home or care home by providing the same level of care that would be expected should you be admitted to hospital. The team is led by a medical consultant. Patients are referred to the Hospital at Home team by their GP or hospital medical staff to allow them to continue their treatment in the comfort of their home. The specialist team meets daily to discuss treatment and ensure they are doing everything they can to help a person stay healthy at home. Where this is not be possible, our specialist team will admit to hospital for ongoing specialist care.
