Medical care and support for patients at home

A new programme is being offered to hospital patients in West Kent - so that they can receive medical care and support back at home rather than from a hospital ward.

'Hospital at Home' is aimed at patients who need further care but would benefit from being in their usual surroundings. Jenna Verdicchio reports. Interviewees: Maurice Gilham, patient; Dawn Hallam, Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust; and Dr Laurence Maiden, consultant.
