Supported Discharge from Hospital Service
Supporting the NHS to reduce discharge from hospital delays
With the aim of reducing discharge from hospital delays to free up much-needed bed space, the service supports the NHS to get people home as soon as they can.
For those vulnerable patients who have no other form of support at home, we can help the overcome the barriers to discharge by providing support with day-to-day living for a fixed period of time, normally between 4-6 weeks; helping with everyday chores such as shopping, picking up prescriptions and support to attend appointments.
We also identify any ways to reduce re-admissions and support people into their local community, signposting and providing a warm handover to other agencies who can continue supporting their needs.
