One Call nominated in Nursing Times awards

Friday 11th August, 2017

We’re delighted to announce that our OneCall service in Coastal West Sussex has been nominated for a Nursing Times award in their ‘care for older people’ category.

The One Call team’s work behind the scenes is a vital part of our work to prevent avoidable hospital admissions. They do that by providing rapid assessment over the phone of each patient’s needs and then work with all the urgent care options in the area to help keep the patient out of hospital.

The service operates 24/7 365 days a year with calls handled by nurses and other experienced staff. I know from the feedback that we get about the service, that many patients and their families and carers also find it valuable to be able to speak with a nurse overnight if they are having a problem.

The Nursing Times Awards ceremony takes place on Thursday 2 November at Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London.
