Intermediate care is an umbrella term for a range of services that deliver short term care, support or rehabilitation to patients who have suffered a sudden onset of ill health.
We bridge the gap between hospital and home, helping patients recover more quickly, so that they can cope in their own home and so prevent unnecessary admission to hospital or premature admission to long-term nursing or residential care.
Within Locala we have two 20 bed rehabilitation centres, Oakmoor in Huddersfield and Westmoor in Dewsbury and a dedicated nursing team. We also have 35 nursing beds across Kirklees. These are at: Fieldhead Park, Batley Hall and the Maple Ward at Holme Valley Hospital.
