The Rapid Intervention Service is a team that assesses and organises nursing and social care for patients with acute conditions who would otherwise be admitted to hospital.
The service consists of a multi-disciplinary team of nurses and health care assistants, who will attend a patient in their own home to organise and if appropriate, deliver acute home based care.
Within the assessment of patient care if necessary, the Rapid Intervention Team will organise diagnostic tests, organise admission to a community bed or if appropriate an acute setting .
The period of care delivery within the community is up to a maximum of 72 hours and the team will commence discharge planning as soon as patients are admitted to the caseload.
Patients accepted for care under the Rapid Intervention Team will include those with a non-life threatening condition, which would alternatively be admitted to hospital.

The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust (RNOH) is the largest orthopaedic hospital in the UK, and is regarded as a leader in the field of orthopaedics both in the UK and world-wide.
The RNOH provides a comprehensive range of neuro-musculoskeletal health care, ranging from acute spinal injury or complex bone tumour to orthopaedic medicine and specialist rehabilitation for chronic back pain sufferers. This broad range of services is unique within the NHS.
As a national centre of excellence, the RNOH treats patients from across the country, many of whom have been referred by other hospital consultants for second opinions or for treatment of complex or rare conditions.
Patients benefit from a team of highly specialised consultants, many of whom are nationally and internationally recognised for their expertise and experience. Consultants are supported in their work by nurses, therapists and other specialist clinical staff who are trained experts in their particular fields of orthopaedic care.
The RNOH plays a major role in teaching, with 20% of all UK orthopaedic surgeons receive training here. Our teaching and clinical effectiveness are enhanced by our work in research and development and academic links with University College, London. Research departments at Stanmore include the Institute of Orthopaedics, the Centre for Disability Research and Innovation, the Institute of Human Performance and the Centre for Biomedical Engineering.
The RNOH works closely with other hospitals and trusts, with whom we have joint appointments to ensure maximum availability of specialist skills for patients. Our patients benefit from access to ASPIRE leisure centre which is located on site and hosts first-class facilities for able-bodied and disabled people.
