star this property answer text <p>The Department agrees that it is important that there is appropriate support for patients on discharge from hospital. All patients should have a discharge assessment to determine the level of care they will need upon discharge from hospital, including whether a care plan is needed.</p><p> </p><p>The NHS Long Term Plan makes clear the importance of moving care into the community, and this Government is committed to achieving this. It commits an extra £4.5 billion a year by 2023/24 of investment in primary care and community health services.</p><p> </p><p>The National Health Service is currently developing the Implementation Framework for the Long Term Plan. Improving discharge from hospital and supporting patients to recover their independence in the most appropriate setting will be taken into account within this framework.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Care Act 2014 is clear that commissioning services without properly considering the impact on people’s wellbeing is unacceptable. However, it would be inappropriate to introduce a blanket ban on 15 minute homecare visits. They may be appropriate in certain circumstances, for instance, checking medication has been taken.</p><p> </p><p>Ultimately, local authorities are responsible for the commissioning of services. We are supporting local authorities to improve commissioning of care.</p><p> </p><p>The Department worked with the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services and the Local Government Association to produce a framework of standards, ‘Commissioning for Better Outcomes’ which explicitly states that inappropriate use of short visits is not compatible with best practice.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has also worked with local government and the care sector to develop and encourage good practice in commissioning and managing local markets. A suite of guidance is now available at the on-line Hub on GOV.UK.</p><p> </p><p>The Department is working with organisations from across the adult social care sector to implement Quality Matters – a commitment to improving quality.</p>

star this property answer text <p>As set out by the National Health Service in their Five Year Forward View, out-of-hospital care needs to become a bigger part of NHS provision, and we recognise that community health services are a key part of achieving this.</p><p> </p><p>When patients have been admitted to hospital and are ready to be discharged, the focus should be on discharging them to their usual place of residence wherever possible. As part of their Better Care Fund plans, all areas are expected to implement the High Impact Change model to support system-wide improvement in discharging patients. This model includes a ‘home first’ approach which supports timely discharge and the delivery of health and care closer to home.</p><p> </p><p>We are also increasing capacity in the community so that more people can receive care in their own homes. To date, the NHS has boosted clinical capacity and capability of NHS 111, which now takes 16 million calls each year, with more than 50% of callers receiving clinical input in April this year. The NHS has also expanded ‘Hear and Treat’ and ‘See and Treat’ ambulance services so that they now cover 3.5 million people, with the provision of telephone advice and treatment of people in their homes saving needless trips to hospital.</p><p> </p><p>We want people to be able to live in their own home for as long as possible. The Department funds the Disabled Facilities Grant to support older and disabled people on low-incomes to adapt their homes to make them suitable for their needs. The Department also provides funding to build specialised housing options - through the Care and Support Specialised Housing Fund – to provide more suitable home environments for older people and those with learning and physical disabilities, and mental ill health.</p><p> </p><p>Housing will be a crucial part of considerations for reform of care and support which we expect to be set out in the Green Paper in autumn 2018. We intend to set out proposals for existing, new, and specialised housing, to ensure people can live in a ‘safe and suitable’ home, for as long as possible.</p>
