GP support in care homes reduces unplanned hospital attendances by 25%

Over the past 18 months, GPs across Gloucestershire have been delivering an enhanced service for older people living in care homes.

The results have significantly improved the quality of care provided, and we have also seen a fall of around 25% in the number of residents attending hospital and a reduction of around 5% in unscheduled admissions.
