Southwark and Lambeth Integrated Care: Evaluation of the Older People's Programme Final report March 22, 2019
We estimated the impact on secondary care utilisation and costs of the Older People's Programme in Southwark and Lambeth; a multi-faceted primary care intervention for older people at higher risk of avoidable hospitalisation. There was evidence of reduced A&E attendance but no evidence of reduced emergency admissions. Overall, outpatient attendances and elective admissions were reduced. The Older People's Programme was not cost-saving.
