Changing the Provision of Community Rehabilitation in Erewash

Thank you to those who took part in our conversations, either in person or online, to provide feedback. The CCG’s plans were approved at the governing body meeting on Thursday 5 September. You can read about changes below or visit the full governing body papers here.

NHS Derby and Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is responsible for allocating the budget for county healthcare and working with all regional health partners, including hospitals, to ensure the highest quality and most up to date care possible is provided. Part of this works requires us to periodically check 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. Three types (pathways) of care is provided for patients who have ongoing rehabilitation support needs and require ongoing support when they are discharged from a major hospital.  These types of care are 1) care and support at home 2) supportive bed care and 3) hospital care beds.

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

To address this we agreed changes were needed to these types of care in Erewash. The 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.
