New Research Findings show a reduction of unplanned hospital admissions


Our ARC supported the Bradford Inequalities Research Unit’s (BIRU) recent evaluation of a Central Locality Integrated Care Services (CLICS) which identified evidence that indicates that the CLICS intervention may reduce unplanned hospital admissions for up to 12 months after discharge from CLICS.

The project involved a group of CLICS patients along with a matched control group. The average age of those in the CLICS group was 59.8 years, 63% were female and 44% were of Pakistani heritage.
