ABSTRACT
The article discusses a report by The King's Fund which states that the NHS can reduce the level of emergency admissions for older people through better integration of hospitals, community and primary care services. The health think tank report reveals that the number of overnight stays can be cut by 2.3 million a year, freeing up 7,000 beds and saving the NHS 462 million Pounds Sterling annually. The report highlights key areas where the NHS can reduce the need for acute care.
