Stopping the Revolving Door:  Reducing Hospital Re-Admissions In Your Area

11 November 2015


Westminster, London

The recent Healthwatch report highlighted the lack of care for people discharged from hospital. More attention needs to be put on assessing and planning for not just a person’s health needs, but the financial, living and caring arrangements once they are discharged.

Key issues to be addressed include:
  • How best to assess & plan with patients before discharge
  • Sharing best practice in reducing avoidable re-admissions
  • Engaging with families & carers about discharge planning
  • Improving personalised care in the community
