The UCLH@Home service is part of the UCLH Integrated Discharge Service and is a nurse-led service working in partnership with Whittington Health.
The service enables patients who are clinically stable to go home and complete the remainder of their acute care pathway in the community whilst remaining under the care of their UCLH hospital consultant.
UCLH@Home ensures patients are supported to leave hospital as soon as they no longer need an acute hospital bed. Being at home means patients recover in their own surroundings and reduces chances of hospital acquired infections. It also means that acute hospital beds are available for patients who need care and treatment at UCLH.
