Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospital Trust | Midlands
The Pocus Team is expanding boundaries by redefining emergency healthcare and delivering acute hospital care out of the traditional environment by seeing patients in their own home. With acute medical consultant decision-making in situ, supported by diagnostics including point of care ultrasound (POCUS) and blood testing, clinicians carry acute drugs to care for the patient without transfer to hospital. This aims to avoid admission to hospital, potentially a long stay away from home, and improve health outcomes for the patient.
