BBC South Today 140722: Falls and Frailty car service

An innovative urgent community response team celebrates the addition of a second vehicle to its falls and frailty car service in North Hampshire. The service enables patients living with frailty to be treated at home and to avoid a trip to the Emergency Department. Wessex AHSN’s healthy ageing team worked in partnership with the providers to review this collaborative approach, and consolidate the learning into an Urgent Community Response Frailty Service Toolkit to support the spread of the model across England and help ambulance services to deliver the national urgent community response target.
