    how does a patient access the hospital aftercare?

    • Hello Olga

      The Hospital to Home Project runs on 2 wards in North Tyneside Hospital and will soon start running on one ward at Wansbeck General Hospital, it is smallscale at the moment but we are hopeing it will be transferable to other wards and hospitals in the future.
      The hospital aftercare comprises of an Age UK Discharge pack with useful information, a follow up phone call and in a small number of test cases a home visit within one week of hospital discharge. The patients that access this servive are selected by the project staff with assistance from ward staff.
      It depends on the area you live as to the hospital aftercare you get, plus what type of aftercare you require. If you have been discharged from hospital and find you need support, I would recommend you ring your local Age UK or Age Concern office and they will advise the best route to gain support. Alternatively you could contact your local Adult Social Services Team, they should refer you onto their Gateway team who will assess your needs and direct you to the correct support agency.

      Hope this helps.

      Kind regards
      Julie
