"No access to Hospital at Home in Edinburgh"
Posted by Dementia Daughter (as ),
My frail elderly relative is now on 5th emergency hospital admission in as many weeks for a long term condition that does not require surgery. Her acute pain cannot be treated in the community/at home as Hospital at Home is not yet available in this area. Outcomes for the patient & family, GPs and acute services would be better if these admissions could be avoided.
