Abstract The paper uses two-years worth of data from 150 English local authorities to quantify the extent to which local variations in social care resources are associated with variations in performance in the acute sector, and particularly on the rates of hospital delayed discharges and hospital emergency readmissions. Results indicate social care services play a significant role in explaining local variations in acute sector performance.
