Everyone at Healthcare at Home wishes the NHS a very happy 70th birthday. We’re proud to have worked with such a great national institution for over 25 years that has improved the lives of millions of people.
A valued partnership
Healthcare at Home was established to partner with the NHS and complement its services by providing flexible solutions for patient care at home.
Throughout our history, we have partnered with NHS trusts to share our expertise and put in place person-centred and practical interventions to help build sustainable healthcare models.
Our clinical expertise enhances the patient experience, improving adherence, releasing capacity, and helping to transition patients between treatments. We have proven that we can work flexibly at the preferred pace of our NHS partners, achieving optimum outcomes for both our patients and the NHS.
By managing clinical care at home, we have helped the NHS free up patient beds which saves on costs. In 2017, our Out of Hospital services, including our Recovery at Home programme, released 94,000 beds back to the NHS. Across the UK, Healthcare at Home provides 257 beds every day – the capacity equivalent of an additional hospital. Through our Homecare service, the NHS makes gross annual savings of £275 million, which can be re-directed into vital services.back
