Community Hospitals in Moray

Community hospitals are hospitals where most patients are admitted, and cared for, by their own GPs. Their functions are usually considered to be:

  • Acute medical care where patients cannot be cared for at home, but where the expertise and/or the specialist diagnostic facilities of a major specialist hospital are not required

  • Post acute care including rehabilitation

  • Minor Injuries Service 

  • Palliative Care

In addition they may host a variety of functions for the locality including:

  • Diagnostic facilities (e.g. x-ray, ultrasound, sigmoidoscopy, cardiac assessment, telemedicine)
  • Therapeutic facilities (e.g. Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Minor Surgery, Day Hospital)
  • Facilities for joint teams (community nursing teams and social work/care management teams)
  • Specialist outpatient clinics
  • Intermediate Care Clinics

Hospitals have often shared expertise and equipment, and offered cross border services to patients not nominally in their areas.
