Healthwatch Hartlepool Hospital Discharge Investigation
There are few issues in the area of Health and Social Care that have attracted as much attention as patient discharge from hospital. Hartlepool is no exception, and over recent times Healthwatch Hartlepool has been made aware of an increase in the number of issues regarding the discharge of patients from hospital to the community. From this flow of intelligence from patients, carers and partner organisations it is clear how important this issue is to all concerned and consequently Healthwatch Hartlepool made it central to its 2014 work programme.
Below you will find attached a report undertaking by Healthwatch Hartlepool to investiagte the state of our local discharge service at our local hospitals. This investiagtion was caried out in November 2014, with the details published in the report below.
