The aim of the Community Discharge Service is to provide a safe, effective, person-centered approach to the transition of medically fit patients from the acute hospital to their own home / or other community setting. The service works passionately towards a 'Home First' ethos, and principle that no decisions about long-term care should be made in an acute hospital environment. The Community Discharge Service offers timely therapy follow up of patients upon discharge either at home or in an interim setting; to provide ongoing assessment +/- short term care, supporting the patients' recovery whilst determining ongoing needs.
