Bed Blocking in the NHS. A little known third option to help discharge teams free up space right now

Posted around 7 months ago •

If you are an NHS health professional or family concerned about bed blocking and getting people home where they belong, then this episode is for you.

 Hi, and welcome to the Chasing Care Podcast. On today's episode, I'm delighted to say that we have Alex Palmer from Noble Live in Care. She's got a history in the care sector, so she knows about everything live in care as the third option for discharge teams and social workers

If you don’t know about this option we help unravel the benefits!

"What we are excited to talk about is the NHS and Bed blocking big news story."

13,771 patients remaining in hospital who no longer need to be there - The Kings Fund. Up 9.4% on the year before.

We also explore the differences between a CQC regulated care provider and introduction agencies that have no responsibility to manager a carer. A valuable clarification of what to expect if families choose not to go down the fully managed care solution for a loved one.
