The Enhanced Rapid Response and Supported Discharge Team (ERR / SDT) provides healthcare at home to adults aged 18 years and older who live in the boroughs of Lambeth or Southwark, South London. The people that we support have a range of diagnoses and clinical presentations, including falls, orthopaedic, respiratory, frailty and neurological conditions. We:
1. Prevent unnecessary hospital admissions
2. Facilitate the safe discharge of people from healthcare in hospital to healthcare at home
3. Provide intensive, short term multi- disciplinary rehabilitation and care support to promote functional independence.
Healthcare in the home is rapidly increasing and enables people to be treated at home where they are more comfortable. This helps us to provide a more holistic, well-rounded and bespoke healthcare service to the people we support.
