We need to make sure older people get the right care in the community to reduce demand in the long term

By Gabrielle Silver, Chief Executive

Sir Simon Stevens has said he wants people who have been in hospital for over 21 days to be discharged urgently to release capacity for coronavirus. This is the right thing to do, but it’s equally important older people get the right care in the right place to avoid unplanned readmissions. Bouncing back into hospital will expose them to risk of infection and put further pressure on hospitals facing unprecedented demand. Our deep local knowledge and insight means we can make sure older people get the right care in the right place. #coronavirus #rightcareintherightplace
