Average delayed transfers of care bed attributable to Social Care (for those aged 18 and over), per 100,000 population (12 month average) (10764) Metric type

Help text
Average number of delayed transfers of care attributable to Social Care on a particular day taken over the year divided by the size of the adult population in the area (aged 18 and over) multiplied by 100,000.

A delayed transfer of care occurs when a patient is ready for transfer from a hospital bed, but is still occupying such a bed. A patient is ready for transfer when:
  • (a) a clinical decision has been made that the patient is ready for transfer AND
  • (b) a multi-disciplinary team decision has been made that the patient is ready for transfer AND
  • (c) the patient is safe to discharge/transfer.

    This is the average of the 12 monthly ?DTOC Beds? figures calculated from the monthly Situation Report (SitRep).
