According to recent reports the number of patients who are needlessly retained in hospital is placing a huge stress on health services. It is estimated that bed blocking, is costing the NHS £545,000 per day.

The government’s objective is to greatly increase the administration of elderly patients to be cared for from home and reduce the strain on secondary care.

Being able to monitor people from home offers a safety net that allows vulnerable patients to be discharged earlier without affecting their care.

In a recent survey of 350 doctors, 93% of those surveyed said they would prefer to be cared for at home rather than in hospital. When the doctors were asked 80% agreed that home care would be more beneficial to those in hospital care.
Promedica24 can help to tackle issues with bed blocking by offering around the clock 24 hour live in care for affordable prices. A carer is carefully matched to the client to help them maintain the best quality of life, all within the comfort of their own home.
