GPs asked to help trusts cut long hospital stays by 25% before winter


Older people especially with long term conditions and dementia, are not suitable to stay at home with 2 visits for half an hour a a day, when they can't safely wash/dress, feed themselves or mobilise to the toilet. Many of these 'People', are left to their own devices, with almost no social care or human interaction. Unless their are families to support them, they will inevitably end up in hospital unless care provisions improve, as they can't be left on the floor at home alone.
