Our Programmes

Enabling people to live well at home, or a homely setting, in their community for longer.

We deliver our support to Integration Authorities through a range of improvement programmes. All of our programmes focus on:

Hospital at Home

Hospital at Home is a short-term, targeted intervention that provides a level of acute hospital care in an individual’s own home, or homely setting that is equivalent to that provided within a hospital. We are providing support to NHS Boards and health and social care partnerships to create Hospital at Home services.

Find out more about the Hospital at Home programme.

Focus on Frailty 

We work with NHS Boards, health and social care partnerships and GP Practices to improve the experience of and access to person-centred, coordinated health and social care for people aged 65 and over who are living with frailty or at risk of frailty.

Applications are open from Monday 13 March 2023 until: 17:00 on Friday 28 April 2023.

Living and Dying Well with Frailty Collaborative (hibernated)

A large-scale change collaborative which aims to improve earlier identification, anticipatory care planning and shared decision-making, and support a multidisciplinary approach so that people living with frailty get the support they need, at the right time, at the right place.
