Aberdeen councillors have been told about the benefits of receiving hospital-level care at home.
Members of the audit and performance services committee heard a talk from Dr Calum Leask, of Aberdeen City Health and Social Care Partnership, about the Acute Care at Home model.
Findings showed that, of those who used the service, 88% were less stressed, 86% would rather be at home than in hospital and 96% would recommend the model.
Dr Leask said 84 people were surveyed.
He added: “Even in a small cohort, they were very consistent findings.”
The findings were part of a six-point three-year strategic investment programme, which was approved in 2016.
