NAIC is a partnership project between the British Geriatrics Society, the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services, AGILE, the College of Occupational Therapists, the Royal College of Physicians (London), the Royal College of Nursing, the Patient’s Association and the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists.

It’s now the biggest health and care audit in England and an essential tool in benchmarking Reablement and Intermediate Care Services.

To meet the challenge of an ageing population, we need to understand how best to support older people at vulnerable times; particularly when they are at risk of hospital admission or being discharged from hospital. Intermediate Care provides alternative, community based services to better meet the needs of older people and enable more efficient patient flows through the health and social care system.
