New intermediate care guideline from NICE

Intermediate care focuses on the person's own strengths and helps them realise their potential to regain independence.  This new guideline from NICE covers referral and assessment for intermediate care and also supports providers to develop a person-centred approach and to deliver efficient and cost-effective services. It has been developed by the NICE Collaborating Centre for Social Care, a partnership led by SCIE.  

Intermediate care including reablement

This guideline covers referral and assessment for intermediate care and how to deliver the service. Intermediate care is a multidisciplinary service that helps people to be as independent as possible. It provides support and rehabilitation to people at risk of hospital admission or who have been in hospital. It aims to ensure people transfer from hospital to the community in a timely way and to prevent unnecessary admissions to hospitals and residential care.

This guideline includes recommendations on:

  • core principles of intermediate care, including reablement
  • supporting infrastructure
  • assessment of need for intermediate care
  • referral into intermediate care and entering the service
  • delivering intermediate care
  • transition from intermediate care
  • training and development
