Norfolk and Norwich Hospital University Hospital Expands Virtual Ward
A hospital looking at different ways to ease pressure on beds is to expand its virtual ward.
The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) is among the first in the country to use technology to help patients continue treatment at home.
The hospital said some 40 patients were currently receiving virtual care.
Medical director Prof Erika Denton said it meant resources and staff could be better deployed to patients with more complex medical needs.
David Whitlock, 67, from Diss, who spent time in the hospital after being diagnosed with serious Covid symptoms, is now being cared for remotely.
