Hospital at Home

Patients on Hospital at Home stay in their own homes but they recieve extra care and attention from the Hospital at Home team. The team work like a hospital ward team and have regular multi-disciplinary meetings where they discuss the patients they are looking after. The service is designed to give patients extra support so that they are not admitted to hospital or so that their admission is as short as possible. This service is available across Oxfordshire.

The Hospital at Home Team will see a patient for a maximum of 14 days, although this could be shorter as patients are assessed on their individual needs. The decision about when to discharge a patient from Hospital at Home is made in partnership between the patient, the team and the patient’s GP.

Patients can be referred to the service through:

  • district nurses
  • local minor injuries units (MIU)
  • out-of-hours services
  • Oxfordshire hospitals
  • GPs
  • emergency multidisciplinary assessment unit (EMU)
  • case managers
