Medical Oversight for Intermediate Care Beds
Intermediate care is a multidisciplinary service that helps people to be as independent as possible. It provides support and rehabilitation to people who have been in hospital. It aims to ensure people transfer from hospital to the community in a timely way and to prevent unnecessary admissions to hospitals and residential care.
BHF delivers GP oversight for the Intermediate Care provision in Barnsley, helping the therapists and nursing teams who care for the patients. We currently provide this service to four care homes and an Intermediate Care Ward at Barnsley Hospital.
