STRUCTURE: Patients who are discharged after a stay at Bradford Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust are to get extra help at home.

Carers’ Resource’s Home from Hospital project helps with everything from benefits guidance and restarting any home care, to making sure that houses are safe and that gas, electric and water supplies are in working order. Volunteers will visit patients at home.

The trust hopes the scheme – available for up to six weeks after discharge - will reduce length of stay and reduced readmissions through better support for discharged patients.
