Discharge Planning Team - Homerton Hospital

The discharge planning team works with the multi-disciplinary team on the ward – including the patient, doctors, nurses, therapists, specialist nurses and social workers - to carry out each patient’s needs assessments and make the necessary arrangements for patients to be discharged safely and in a timely manner.

The possible options for people who are leaving hospital and are not fully independent are:

  • returning home with rehabilitation, in order to regain the ability to live as independently as possible
  • returning home to live independently or with services such as home care and/or with specialist equipment
  • going from hospital to a rehabilitation unit, to gain the necessary abilities to manage at home, with or without care and equipment
  • where all other options have been explored, to consider a care home placement. This will involve presentation to Health and Social Care Panels, for funding to be decided.
