Is there a place for the hospital as we currently know it in the health system of the future? Is moving care closer to people’s homes always the best option? Follow the discussions with Candace Imison and Nigel Edwards on the Kings Fund website: eg

Putting patient safety first: how long will it take before the NHS learns from its mistakes?

As The King’s Fund argued in Transforming the delivery of health and social care: the case for fundamental change, any discussion about developing new models of care must focus on shifting care closer to home. However, there is a danger of ‘shifting care closer to home’ becoming just a slogan and consequently not being examined sufficiently. It is not a step forward to relocate an activity that should really be stopped or redesigned, or to move care closer to home when this is less convenient for the patient or leads to a reduction in the quality of care.
