As far as I am aware no one has defined what "more Care in the Community" actually consists of! How are these admissions to hospital going to be reduced , what is the strategy ? Currently, in many parts of the country out of hours medical and nursing care is only noticeable by its absence! A close and scientific (or forensic) examination of what District Nurses, Health Visitors,ect actually do and what they achieve is long overdue. Can we continue to afford the "social" visit? Are such visits useful in preventing hospital admission or improving standards of heath/treatment compliance ?
