Rapid Response Team Bexley

Our Bexley Rapid Response Team works closely with the A&E and acute medical units at both Queen Elizabeth and Darent Valley hospitals to minimise unnecessary hospital admissions and support early discharge from hospital where we can. The team will assess your health and social care needs and, if appropriate put together a package of care, which could include:

  • Referral to our Community Assessment and Rehabilitation team for a period of reablement at home
  • Referral to an intermediate care facility for a period of care and rehabilitation
  • Home visits from health and/or social care professionals
  • Referral to another health or social care team.

The team also provides assessments for people who need them at home.

The Bexley Rapid Response Team are available Monday to Sunday from 8am to 8pm.

Oxleas Patient Experience survey

The Oxleas Patient Experience survey gives you the opportunity to feedback on the care and treatment you have received. We also encourage your friends, family and carers to also provide feedback. Hearing your views gives us a better understanding of the needs of our patients, families and carers which helps us to make sure that we are providing a good standard of care. 

The short survey only takes a few minutes to complete and you can provide a written comment explaining what you think is working well and what is not. The Patient Experience team will collect the results of the surveys and these are shared with the relevant departments and management teams. This helps us to shape our services to continually improve the quality of the care and treatment we provide.
