Shifting the Balance of Health Care to Local Settings

The SeeSaw report
Sarah Harvey, Laurie McMahon

Government health policy has been encouraging a shift in the balance of care from hospital to community settings. The Department of Health commissioned The King's Fund, in partnership with Loop2, to undertake a simulation-based project entitled SeeSaw to understand how this shift in care could be achieved. This report outlines the simulation process and describes the event itself. The majority of the report, however, focuses on the learning that emerged during the event and in all the subsequent discussions on the implications for policy-makers, managers and professionals working in the NHS, in social care, and in the independent sector.
