Rapid Support "Red Light" Decisions

This Policy defines the process which will be followed in emergency situations when people require admission and where there is uncertainty about which service is best able to meet individual needs. Its purpose is to ensure that all those involved are speedily brought together, that decisions are rapidly made and executed and that a seventy two hour Care Plan is agreed. 
It is not intended that this Policy replaces established care pathways and decision making processes which are the vehicles through which the vast majority of clinical decisions are negotiated and actioned.
