Intermediate care means services that help people get better quicker without needing to go to hospital, and that also help get people out of hospital and back home - sometimes after a stay in a community rehabilitation unit.
We have introduced two new home-based intermediate care services:
From July - October 2014 we ran a consultation asking people what they thought about the changes we wanted to make about intermediate care services. Read the consultation document ‘Making intermediate care better’ Read the consultation report analysing the responses to the consultation. In December 2014, the CCGs’ governing bodies agreed the model of intermediate care, and this has now been implemented.
