New Government Initiatives

Since 2005, the number of hospital admissions has increased by 2.79 million and yet 30% of the patients occupying beds can be treated elsewhere. How, therefore, can unnecessary admissions to hospitals be reduced so that those who really need acute treatment can be provided for?
Transferring NHS services from the acute trusts to the community is seen as an essential strategy in achieving the £20 billion productivity savings by 2015. 
Farrell Healthcare aspires to be a leading provider of quality care in the community in the Blackpool, Fylde, and Wyre area. We want to work with service providers across the health economy to ensure that the right care is provided to the right patient at the right time.
It is our aim to work in partnership with General Practitioners in the local area to help prevent non-elective hospital admissions and to facilitate early supported discharges, ensuring that patients are settled back into their homes as quickly and comfortably as possible and with the minimum amount of disruption. 

Through this integrated approach to care provision, it is our aim to enhance health outcomes for the local population and to help fulfil the strategic aims of the newly restructured NHS.
