Short-term Rehabilitation / Assessment Beds
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 blocking of discharges from hospital wards because of a lack of capacity for rehabilitation and assessment outside the hospital environment.
