In June 2018, a national ambition was announced by the Secretary of State for Health to lower bed occupancy in hospitals by reducing the number of long stays (21 days or more). A reduction target of 40% has been set for 2019/20, with the aim to reduce the risk of harm to patients from physical and mental deconditioning that could be caused by long hospital stays. The reducing length of stay (RLOS) programme will ensure patients get the care they need in a location best suited to them, improve working environments for staff and reduce crowding in A&E.
