OACP is pleased to provide a whole sector Trusted Assessor Service in association with NHS Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Oxfordshire County Council.

What do we do?

  • Provide robust, impartial assessments of individuals in hospitals, who are requiring ongoing care;
  • Be a single point of contact for Oxfordshire care providers for updates regarding those clients;
  • Support with discharge planning to ensure safe and timely discharges.

What do we aim to achieve?

  • Support clients to get home more quickly and more safely, as part of a smoother discharge process, improving the patient experience;
  • Better utilisation of care provider time and capacity by removing the need for them to complete a face to face assessment, and providing them with a single point of contact based in the acute hospitals;
  • Reduce delays in transfers of care, and reduce readmissions following discharge.
