Virtual wards have firmly taken the stage in 2023, moving care closer to home and avoiding patients spending unnecessary time in hospital. But how do we move even further, into avoiding unnecessary admissions in the first place? How can we best manage multiple long-term conditions in the future?

In this session, we explore the success of virtual wards and ask our panel of experts to debate where we go from here.

This session is supported by Huma.
