Inpatient care and treatment - virtual capacity: interview findings

Virtual Capacity (VC) enables traditional inpatient care and treatment to be provided in alternative settings, often in people’s homes. This report which includes findings from interviews with pathway representatives and a rapid evidence review provides an understanding of how Virtual Capacity is operating in Scotland.


The authors are grateful to the participants who kindly took part in the research. We are also grateful to the Scottish Government library services who conducted the literature search for the rapid evidence review. We would also like to thank the Hospital at Home expert working group who provided feedback.
