The intermediate care service aims to support people who are well enough to leave hospital, but may need some extra support.


The service in Cambridgeshire provides a health and social care in the community service to facilitate admission avoidance and timely discharge from hospital. This includes responding to crises arising in the community - eg, end-of-life and adult protection, including same day provision of assessment (SAP), care plans, treatment and commissioning or direct provision of care.

Out of hours nursing and social care -The out-of-hours community service is provided by a community team, which provides planned and unplanned and crisis response between the hours of 18.00 to 08.00. The service also co-ordinates hospice at home (out of hours), supports Care Response 24, and social care out of hours (private agencies and integrated locality teams).

End-of-life care - this is provided in conjunction with the planned multidisciplinary health and social care teams. We also provide specialist end-of-life care – see Cambridge City services.
