“The [Winter Pressures] service complemented our stretched NHS and social care resource. They were responsive and professional. On a number of days they made the difference to patients getting home and the hospital having another bed for the night. [The Red Cross] were a key partner in our ability to get through winter and beyond. Working with the third sector like this complements the work of the NHS and we need to build on experiences like this.” Mary Tunbridge, Managing Director, William Harvey Hospital, East Kent Hospitals University Trust
