Changing the Provision of Community Rehabilitation in Erewash

As NHS Derby and Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) we are responsible for allocating the budget for healthcare in Derbyshire and we work with all regional health partners, including hospitals, to ensure that we provide the highest quality and most up to date care possible. Part of this works requires us to periodically check that services are organised in the best way to meet current and future needs.

Before leaving hospital every patient is assessed to determine the type of care they need to support them with their recovery. We provide three types (pathways) of care to patients who have ongoing rehabilitation support needs and require ongoing support when they are discharged from a major hospital.

In the Erewash area we have identified through our latest figures that we have too much of some types of care and not enough of other types, meaning patients don’t always get what is best for them.

To address this we have agreed that changes are needed to these types of care in Erewash. The planned changes include providing more community support beds in local authority care homes, reducing the number of community hospital beds, increasing the number of care staff and providing additional health input to support rehabilitation.
