A service in the community where a health professional or care worker will visit you at home to help you manage a problem or provide emergency support for no more than a few days, to help you avoid going into hospital. Rapid response services may be provided by the NHS or by private organisations. You may be referred by your GP to an NHS service, or refer yourself to a private one.
