Delayed Transfers of Care

The chart shows the age split of delayed transfers of care. Participants can test their age split in the online toolkit. 83% of DTOCs were attributable to people age 65 and over in 2015/16. 

A new project for 2017/18 has been developed and aims to take a deep dive into delayed transfers of care and the discharge process from the acute setting.

This project is for all providers of acute care, however a section on delayed transfers of care will also be included within the other sector projects.

Members can participate in this project and receive:

  • Access to the online benchmarking toolkit, allowing you to compare your service nationally across hundreds of metrics
  • A bespoke PDF report summarising key messages and metrics highlighting your organisations position

2017/18 benchmarking project

This project will collect 2016/17 data. Data collection for this project has now closed. An event, free to Network members, is scheduled for 8th February 2018. Register now to attend the Benchmarking & Good Practice in Delayed Transfers of Care event.

For queries about this project, please contact Leigh Jenkins.
