Abstract
  • This paper was partly derived from the proceedings of a conference on Acute Care at Home, held in the King's Fund Centre in June 1989. The report states that Hospital at Home (HAH) services should be made available throughout the country. It shows that many patients prefer the provision of relatively intense nursing and allied support in their own home to conventional hospital stays. The report argues that the reforms proposed in 'Caring for People' could make HAH easier to establish. The report suggests that ideally a new Community Care Development Agency should be created to help introduce good practices like HAH provision linked to other domiciliary support schemes.
