Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council
Short-term Assessment Beds for the Winter Period 2013/14
None
Both the health and social care economies are faced with additional pressure during the winter period as a result of cold weather and staff sickness. One of the principal manifestations of this pressure is the number of inappropriate hospital admissions because of a lack of capacity for assessment outside the hospital environment.

To address this pressure, the Council therefore wishes to commission a total of 20 block-booked beds, five in each of four registered Care Homes, (one home in each of the areas identified on the accompanying map) for the period 4 November 2013 until 30 March 2014.  These will be used specifically to reduce hospital admissions.
