Intermediate Care Bed Service

Intermediate Care Bed Service

The Intermediate Care Bed Service provides support and rehabilitation for people who are considered unsafe to remain in or return to their own homes but who have the capacity to live at home if provided with suitable support and rehabilitation services.   The service focuses on those who are at high risk of:

  • Prolonged hospital stay
  • Inappropriate admission to acute inpatient care

To refer a patient to an Intermediate Care Bed, the GP should telephone the Single Point of Assessment. Woodside Medical practice provide GP cover for the beds, and the expectation is that clinical responsibility will transfer to that practice on agreement with the referring GP.
