Consequences of local variations in social care on the performance of the acute health care sector
This article uses 2 years worth of data from 150 English local authorities to quantify the extent to which local variations in social care resources are associated with variations in performance of the acute sector, and particularly on the rates of hospital delayed discharges and hospital emergency re-admissions. Results indicate that social care services play a significant role in explaining local variations in acute sector performance.
