Many people need help and support following a hospital stay. To check what kind of help might be required, an assessment is usually done in the hospital before you are discharged. We know this assessment can cause delays so health and care organisations in Leeds are looking at a new way to help people leave hospital as soon as they are well enough.
Instead of waiting in the hospital to have an assessment, you could go home when your treatment was finished, and have the assessment there.
Do you (or someone you care for) have experience with hospital discharge? If so, we’d like your views on how this new approach might work best. We’re holding some discussion groups to find out what people think.
If you would like to attend one of the sessions below, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0113 843 5528 to register. Light refreshments and out of pocket expenses (bus tickets, parking, etc) will be provided. We hope to hear from you!
