Safely Home - What happens when people leave hospital and care settings?

Posted on 21/07/15

Cover of PDFWith the help of 101 local Healthwatch, we heard from over 3,000 people who shared their stories with us about their experiences of the discharge process.

We focused on the experiences of older people, homeless people, and people with mental health conditions – three groups for whom the consequences of a failed discharge process were particularly detrimental.

Find out more about our special inquiry into unsafe discharge.
