It sits in the intermediate area between traditional primary care and secondary care and is constantly evolving and developing.
Recent developments of the service include support for uninjured fallers, a COPD exacerbation pilot and work to support early discharge to intermediate care beds.
One of the team has been working with Ageing and Health to pilot the RESPECT (Recommended Summary Plan for Emergency Care and Treatment) documentation in the community.
The new Stirling Care Village will help provide further areas for development with the potential to have better access to step up beds.
GP practice placements, if desired, can also be made available in traditional 17j practices or our 2c Board Run practices, which are at the leading edge of Primary Care Service Development, exploring new models of working, using an expanded multi-
