4 Re-ablement Definition – ‘a period of active care, typically for six weeks, to promote independence, help people live at home and reduce the need for acute hospital care’ Can include a range of therapeutic/social care activities Social Care

5 Policy challenge Concentrates hospitals’ minds not to discharge prematurely Where does re-ablement support best sit – in the 30 day period, afterwards, or both? Where should investment be concentrated – NHS, social care, acute/therapeutic services? 30 days is a point at which responsibility changes, but it should not be the sole focus of planning services Social Care

Tariff revisions currently being piloted Various approaches, including focus on patients regularly re-admitted An opportunity for whole system to work together – hospital, GPs, community services, social care, voluntary sector Social Care
