"The London Pathway approach is about joining up the hospital with the outside world, rather than everyone working in silos. It aims to address the complete gulf that sometimes exists between primary, secondary and social care, housing and the voluntary sector.
"We have all these truly excellent resources working independently - now for the first time a clinical trial will measure the success of joining up those resources so that they can work more effectively and hopefully reduce re-admissions."
