Rapid Hospital Discharge in Cheshire


Rapid Hospital Discharge

NHS Cheshire and Merseyside ICB are working alongside the Internal Discharge Teams at East Cheshire NHS Trust and Mid Cheshire Hospitals to enable individuals to return home safely and sooner, following in-patient treatment. 

Using a digital referral tool, approved healthcare practitioners are able to approve a one off grant for the individual, to enable the one-off purchasing of services or equipment where this will enable the individual return home at least 48 hours sooner than would be otherwise expected.
