Abstract

A changing boundary between hospital and home‐care services over two decades has taken place enabling people to live in their own homes wherever possible, enabling “choice of independence”. Against this background, five principal issues are raised regarding how hospital services have been reshaped over that time and how the pattern of service developments outside the hospital has altered over the same period.
