Abstract: The government's reimbursement policy, whereby local councils face fines if a patient cannot be discharged from hospital because they are waiting for an assessment etc, introduced new pressures into a system that was already fraught. One of the policy's aims is to allow people to exercise ‘genuine choice’ as regards their ongoing and longer-term care. Based on their research into the policy however, Michelle Cornes et al investigate whether choice really can be exercised when lying in a hospital bed.
