Our Home from Hospital project receives academic boost.

It was in the news last week that research by Dr James Brown of Aston University has shown that older patients are 41% less likely to be readmitted if they receive a follow-up phone call the day after leaving hospital. This is exactly what Debbie and Kate, our two Home from Hospital co-ordinators, do for older people being discharged from the RD&E’s Acute Medical Unit. It’s good to know their excellent work and the difference they make has now been vindicated by research.
