Delayed transfers of care (DTOC)

We're waiting for J Allen to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Queen Victoria Hospital NHS Foundation Trust,

Could the authority state how they use agencies and/or software to expedite the discharge of DTOC patients?
How much did they spend with agencies to arrange placements with care homes or home care for DTOC patients in each of the last three financial years?
Do they use Capacity Tracker or any other software of services to identify care homes or home care packages? Please state which software or services are used.

Yours faithfully,

J Allen

Dear J Allen

Thank you for your enquiry.

As a specialist Trust for reconstructive surgery, we do not tend to experience issues with delayed transfers of care. We have not utilised any agencies or software to expedite the discharge of 'DTOC' patients. We have not recorded any spend with agencies to arrange placements with care homes or home care for DTOC patients in any of the last three financial years or use Capacity Tracker or any other software service providing care home services or packages.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you require any further information or clarification.
