Innovation for the NHS

Care Sourcer works directly with NHS trusts to reduce delayed discharge rates.  We are currently requesting expressions of interest from NHS trusts for an SBRI-funded pilot.

Reducing delayed discharge rates

In a trial funded by the Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI), Care Sourcer reduced delayed discharge rates by 40%

We have now been awarded Phase 2 funding from SBRI and are able to work with more NHS trusts.  In these pilots, we aim to:


  • Improve patient flow, resulting in a reduction in delays and excess bed days.
  • Help trusts make better use of existing bed capacity by contributing to the SAFER flow bundle.
  • Provide the NHS with visibility of care provider capacity so they can make faster, better-informed decisions about patient safety and discharge.
  • Empower patients and their families to make an informed choice without delays.

How it works

Step 1

Care Request

The care user’s specific needs are submitted to our online system

Step 2

Offers from care providers

Nearby providers are automatically alerted and can make a bespoke care offer 24/7

Step 3

Selection and discharge

The requester can compare offers online and quickly arrange care
