Virtual wards allow clinical teams to safely and effectively bring patients the care they need at home, rather than in hospital. Patients can be referred to a virtual ward to avoid an admission into hospital, or when they are discharged from a hospital ward to the place they call home (this could include care homes).
Virtual ward care is personalised to each patient and provided by a team, supported and enabled by technology.
Further information on virtual wards is available on the Birmingham and Solihull Integrated Care System (ICS) website.
