If you are an inpatient in hospital, the Hospital Discharge Team will provide support and guidance to help you make a successful and safe move back into your own home or an alternative placement (eg, rehabilitation or discharge to assess).
The Hospital Discharge Team provide comprehensive assessment and case management support to individuals in hospital to facilitate a safe discharge.
The team work closely with NAViGO (Mental health services) and Diana Princess of Wales Hospital to support people and promote their independence, re-enablement, health and wellbeing.
The Hospital Discharge Team act as co-ordinators of the various care professionals and support agencies that need to be involved in the decision making, with you and your family, as to the best way to continue your care following discharge from hospital, through your recovery and ideally back into your own home.
The Hospital Discharge Team is made up of Discharge Nurse Practitioners. It is available to adults residing in North East Lincolnshire.
If, following your assessment you aren’t able to remain at home, you may be offered a short-term placement in a residential care setting or an enhanced recovery bed in the community.
If this is the case, throughout your stay you will be participating in your individual care plan that we have designed to promote and maximise your independence with the ultimate goal of getting you back into your own home.
