Setting up a new, effective patient-led early discharge process is crucial for safe, quality, compassionate, care at CHFT.
Put simply it is a must, we need to have it in place as soon as possible and to achieve this we have a new team meeting weekly to drive our plans forward.
The team is looking a raft of possibilities to try and achieve the best early discharge process for our patients. Considerations currently being looked at include:
The team is made of our doctors, nurses, managers and our healthcare partners and include social services and primary care colleagues.
Supporting lead Joe Minton said: " We have to take a dramatically new look at how we work to improve our discharge process for our patients and their families. It means some really different ways of working and we know we can do it."
