Virtual Wallet for Professionals - Cheshire
Virtual Wallet in Cheshire
Virtual Wallet is being used by NHS Cheshire as part of their plan to enable more individuals to benefit from personalised care and personal health budgets.
Currently, Virtual Wallet is being used in different ways to support both Continuing Healthcare (CHC) and Rapid Hospital Discharge pathways.
Rapid Hospital Discharge PHBs
NHS Cheshire are working alongside the Internal Discharge Teams at East Cheshire NHS Trust and Mid Cheshire Hospitals to enable individuals return home safely and sooner, following in-patient treatment.
Using a digital referral tool, approved healthcare practitioners are able to approve a one off grant for the individual, to enable the one-off purchasing of services of equipment where this will enable the individual return home at least 48 hours sooner than would be otherwise expected.
