Hospital at Home

What is Hospital at Home?

The Hospital at Home team are here to:

  • provide healthcare to you at home as an alternative to hospital admission
  • support earlier discharges from hospital for people who are well enough to return 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.

This service is available across Oxfordshire.
