Short Intensive Support Service

Patients at risk of going in to hospital may be referred on to our Short Intensive Support Service.

Our multi-disciplinary team, led by advanced nurse practitioners, provide care to a patient at home up to six times a day, for up to 72 hours, helping to stabilise their condition and prevent unnecessary hospital admissions.

This is particularly beneficial to frail, older people and those with long term conditions who would prefer to be treated at home in a familiar environment rather than being taken in to hospital.
